Our Canadian affiliate was Crossroads’s first extension center and is now more than a decade old. The ministry continues to attract new students and grow steadily. Mentors disciple students as they work through the Crossroads courses, and the Bible League of Canada assists the office, located in Burlington, ON, with administrative leadership.

The Canadian extension center offers lessons in English, Spanish and French and is reaching an increasing number of Aboriginals, who compose twenty percent of the Canadian prison population. The program is primarily conducted by mail correspondence, so when students complete their lessons, they are forwarded to volunteer mentors, who send them directly back to the students.

Crossroads Canada currently has 191 volunteer mentors and is always seeking more. They also welcome inquiries and donations from anyone who wishes to help support their ministry. For more information, please visit their website:

One day, the guard yells, “Who wants a Bible study?” I jumped at the chance, just to get away from the noise and confusion of the floor and to have something to do. I thought that all this religious mumbo-jumbo wasn’t for me, but it was through these Bible studies that I learned about this caring, loving God who sacrificed His Son for me because He loves me that much. –Brian M., Crossroads Canada Student
