Canada's First Anglican Bishop

Bishop Charles InglisCharles Inglis was named the Church of England's first colonial bishop in 1787. His diocese initially included what are now the Atlantic Provinces, Quebec, Ontario and Bermuda.

He was born at Glencolumbkille, Ireland in 1734. He gained prominence as rector of Trinity Church, New York where during the American Revolution he opposed independence from Britain.

At the time of his appointment, there were 22 clergy in his vast diocese. Five years later, what is now Ontario and Quebec were split off to form the Diocese of Quebec.

In 1789, Bishop Inglis established King's College at Windsor, NS. It moved to Halifax after a fire in 1920 and is Canada's oldest university.

In 1816, Inglis died at Aylesford, NS after 29 years as bishop. His son John became the third Bishop of Nova Scotia.
