The organization was founded in the winter of 1958 by Mary Van Stolk of Edmonton to protest the dangers of nuclear fallout. Mrs. Stolk travelled across Canada, meeting clergymen, businessmen, academics, politicians, and others, gathering a consensus to form a national committee. Hugh L. Keenlyside was named provisional chairman of the committee which was then named the Committee for the Control of Radiation Hazards. In March 1961 the national office was set up in Toronto. Mrs. Van Stolk was replaced as Executive Secretary by F.C. Hunnius. The major policy initiative of the group was a national petition against nuclear weapons for Canada. In the winter of 1962 the organization changed its name to the Canadian Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CCND). The organization was active until 1965.
