charity logo

The Society works with the Order of Special Full-Time Servants of Jehovah's Witnesses to administer a Bible educational work. This includes the conducting of special training schools for those who take the lead in the preaching activity of Jehovah's Witnesses. During the 2015 fiscal year, The Society financially sponsored 57 annual conventions in 24 locations within Canada to promote our Bible education work. During the year, The Society's printery, in Georgetown, Ontario, printed material used in promoting Bible education. Included in this was: 153,485,544 copies of the semi-monthly Bible journal The Watchtower; 120,910,138 copies of Awake! (companion to The Watchtower); 12,534,318 Bible-based brochures; and 335,730,165 Bible-based tracts. These literature items were distributed at no charge to the general public and to congregation members throughout Canada, the United States, the Caribbean and Guyana. We financially supported charitable programs in other countries to further the worldwide Bible educational work of Jehovah's Witnesses. We also work with the Order of Special Full-Time Servants in administering an on-going program of constructing and renovating places of worship known as Kingdom Halls.
