End Date:  
Affiliation: Anglican
Other Information: In 1902, Bishop John Dart (New Westminster) informed the "English Association for New Westminster and Kootnay" of the need for a diocesan theological school to train clergymen for western Canada. No significant action was taken until 1910 when a large grant from an Anglican conference held in London, UK, was designated with the stipulation that it be used only for a provincial theological school. This event provided the impetus for three British Columbia Bishops to prepare a plan for theological education in the province. It was approved by the Provincial Synod and the English donors who distributed the funds through the British Columbia and Church Aid Society. St. Mark's Hall opened in 1912 at 1249 Davie Street, Vancouver, as one of the two training existing schools. In 1913 St. Mark's Hall was incorporated.
