The immigration of the Copts to Canada (Copts in Canada) might have started as early as the late 1950s. Due to an increasing amount of discrimination towards Copts in Egypt in the 1970s and low income in Egypt. Canada has been receiving a greater number of these immigrants, and the number of Coptic immigrants into Canada has been growing ever since. In 1964, St. Mark Coptic Orthodox Church was established in Toronto; this was the first Coptic parish established in the Coptic diaspora. In 2002, a survey showed 22 Coptic Orthodox parishes in Canada, indicating growth. In 2011, there were five Coptic Orthodox churches in Montreal.[Wikipedia
