About us

At CEF Ontario we care about kids. In fact we are passionate about sharing the love of Jesus with Ontario's children. We are pleased to partner with Bible-believing churches across Ontario, working with you to reach the children of your community.

Our Mission

“In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost.” Matthew 18:14 (NIV)  

Jesus said those words.  They are the reason CEF exists, and the basis of our clear and simple mission statement.

“To evangelize boys and girls with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus, and establish (disciple) them in the Word of God and the local church for Christian living.”

For more than 70 years we’ve been doing whatever God enables us to do to reach Ontario’s 2 million children.  If that sounds good to you, let’s talk about how we can partner together.  Together we can ensure vast numbers of children have an opportunity to know the love of Jesus. Together we can make a difference.


CEFOntario is proud to be affiliated with CEF International, a global ministry founded in 1937 and ministering to millions of children each year in more than 180 countries.  We are also an associate of CEF Canada, and part of a family of CEF ministries reaching children throughout the various Canadian provinces.

CEFOntario is truly an interdenominational ministry, working alongside hundreds of churches each year from a variety of denominations.  Our Doctrinal Statement is consistent in content with those held by most evangelical denominations.
