Title
Genesis of the Montreal Council of Social Agencies
Abstract
The Montreal Council of Social Agencies (MCSA), a coordinating organization for English-speaking Protestant social agencies, was founded in 1921 by John Howard Toynbee Falk, head of McGill University's Department of Social Studies, later the McGill School of Social Workers. The overwhelming emphasis of the MCSA on planning and research reflected its role as animator, information exchange and coordinator of a great variety of social agencies and groups, from major hospitals and fund-raising organizations to church groups and boys' clubs. In 1968, the MCSA merged with its French homologue, the Conseil de Développement Social. It ceased operations in 1976.
