At the turn of the twentieth century economic development transformed Canada's prairie region, as the region's population exploded due to migration from central and eastern Canada and immigration from Britain, the United States, and Europe. This boom severely tested the Methodist Church, Canada's largest Protestant denomination. The church needed more pastors and more money for its expanding mission fields. It was forced to compete with Presbyterians and Anglicans for members, and worried about how to deal with the region's increasing non-Anglo-Saxon population, which lacked Protestant evangelical values and threatened to become Roman Catholic.
