The York-Credit Valley Episcopal Area consists of 50 parishes (including 2 Canon 29 Designated Ministries and a neomonastic community), organized under four deaneries,  as well as nine cemeteries and two schools. The oldest parish is St. Peter, Erindale, dating back to 1825, and the newest congregation is St. Mary and St. Martha, formed of the amalgamated churches of the Advent; Good Shepherd, Mount Dennis; St. John, Weston; and St. David, Lawrence Avenue, in 2015.

In addition to English, services in this diverse and multicultural area are held in Cantonese, Mandarin, Punjabi, Malayalam, Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese. There are also Sudanese, Kenyan, Igbo, and Ghanaian congregations.
