Canadian Baptist Mission (CBM) was established by the Baptist Missionaries of Canada ca. 1850 which is now under the name of Canadian Baptist Ministries. The CBM was originally founded at the initiative of Thomas Gabriel which gave the impetus to the Canadian Baptists to embark on overseas missions.

CBM was later renamed as the Canadian Baptist Overseas Mission Board [1]. It is now existing under the name of Canadian Baptist Ministries[2].
