We were founded by Saint Dominic in the early thirteenth century. We have been in Canada since 1873, and at Saint Mary’s Parish in Vancouver since 1996. We hope to develop a preaching ministry in the Archdiocese of Vancouver. Our Dominican family is large: it includes the friars, the contemplative Dominican nuns, apostolic Dominican sisters, and fraternities of Dominican lay people.
