The original Diocese of Quebec (C/CAN/QUE), founded in 1793, incorporated both Upper and Lower Canada. When the Diocese of Toronto (C/CAN/TOR) was founded in 1839 out of the Upper Canada (C/CAN/QUE (UC), corresponding roughly to present-day Ontario) portion of the Quebec diocese the remaining part of the latter could then simply be referred to as Quebec. In 1850 Montreal Diocese was formed out of part of Quebec Diocese. (The records relating specifically to Upper Canada and Toronto are reproduced separately.)
The USPG archive is now held at the Rhodes House Library, Oxford.
