The Master's Foundation federally incorporated in 1983, is a Canadian based, non-profit inter-denominational organization with charitable status number BN 11924-446 5RR 001. The ministry began in 1965 with Stan and Henry Watrich, third generation Ukrainians, born and raised in Western Canada.

The Watrich's were missionaries at heart and God placed within them a love and compassion for Eastern Europe. The ministry began with the printing of many Christian publications in the Ukrainian language. These publications were a first for Ukraine and even today, are still in great demand in Ukraine and Russia. One of their major personal projects was the translation, printing and distribution of over one million, 48 page gospel booklets into Poland. Many other publications in Eastern Europe stand as testimony of their labours.

As the demand for literature in Eastern Europe increased, The Master’s Foundation was incorporated. From its inception the primary purpose was to be a channel of production of Scripture in various forms, including Bibles, Children’s/Youth Bibles, Christian literature, books, educational aids, study guides and Theological Educational material.

Since then Masters has gone on to provide over 175-40 foot containers of humanitarian aid, build two seminaries, initiate radio broadcasting, support orphanages, kids summer camps as well as participate in many forms of evangelism.
