Montreal Diocesan Theological College (widely known simply as “Dio”) is a theological college in the Anglican tradition. We work in affiliation with McGill University and our partners in the Montreal School of Theology to train people for Christian ministry in all traditions.

We are located in a world-class, multi-cultural, and multi-lingual city that is among the most secular in North America. Our students learn about Christian mission and ministry from people who are constantly thinking through what it means to be a follower of Christ in a pluralistic context. Our welcoming college community offers a supportive place to discern how God is calling you to be a bearer of good news.

Our residential degree programs are offered in collaboration with the School of Religious Studies at McGill University and our partners in the ecumenical Montreal School of Theology.

Students at Dio–whether in the Master of Divinity, Master of Sacred Theology, Bachelor of Theology, or Diploma in Ministry–simultaneously are formed in the Anglican tradition, collaborate with and learn from our ecumenical partners, and study the Christian tradition at one of Canada’s leading universities.

Our Certificate and Licentiate programs offer theological education to students who cannot relocate to Montreal.

For 40 years, our Reading and Tutorial program has trained people for ministry in their local context. Now completely revised, this program continues to form Christian leaders who need local theological education. Our online courses offer a virtual community of students from across the continent who gather to learn more about the Christian tradition and their calling in ministry.
