Our in-person programs in Montreal and our distance programs for students across North America prepare people for faithful and creative leadership in the church and world.

In Montreal, our students are formed by an intercultural environment, enriched by constant collaboration with ecumenical partners, and study at one of Canada’s leading universities. In our distance programs, students are introduced to the basics of theological education in the comforts of their own home. Read more about our wide array of programs.
