EMAS Canada was established in 1948, when Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children restructured and added a new building and acquired new equipment. A group of local doctors, dentists and pharmacists founded the Evangelical Medical Aid Society for the purpose of sending medical equipment from the old hospital to needy mission hospitals overseas. Hospitals in Africa and South America were the first beneficiaries.
For the last seven decades, Canadian healthcare professionals continue to serve every year. Our mission has grown beyond equipment distribution to long-term projects through short-term missions, and healthcare training.
We have much to celebrate!
