The Canadian Reformed Theological Seminary is the operating name of the Theological College of the Canadian Reformed Churches. It is the federational seminary of the Canadian Reformed Churches.


Synod Orangeville (1968) made the decision to establish a Theological College of the Canadian Reformed Churches on Wednesday, November 20, 1968, and to appoint three full-time professors and two lecturers. The College was officially opened in September 1969 in Hamilton, Ontario. [1] The Ontario legislature granted degree granting authority to the Seminary under the Canadian Reformed Theological College Act, 1981 [2] Since 1984, the Faculty is made up of four full-time professors. The seminary moved to a new location on the Hamilton escarpment in 1985. In 2010, the operating name was changed to the Canadian Reformed Theological Seminary. [3]
