Catholics in Canada
Archdiocese of Toronto
Within the Archdiocese of Toronto, you will find a family of faith that is alive and at work in our community. Comprised of nearly 1.9 million Catholics, 225 parishes and 4 missions, the Archdiocese is led by His Eminence, Thomas Cardinal Collins, and assisted by Auxiliary Bishops.
First separated from the Archdiocese of Kingston, the Diocese of Toronto was erected on December 17, 1841. Less than 30 years later, after rapid expansion, on March 18, 1870, the Diocese became the Archdiocese of Toronto.
Operated by the Archdiocese of Toronto, each Catholic Cemetery is a visible sign of our belief in the resurrection. Catholic Cemeteries offer a comforting atmosphere in which our Catholic Faith is celebrated and love for family and friends is remembered. A selection of burial services is available including ground burial, mausoleum crypt entombment, cremation as well as monuments and markers.
