Any idea why those three wards were dissolved is Canada?

Matt said...

I don't know, except that the wards were dissolved in areas of Canada which have either seen no growth in congregations or a slight decline in congregations. Wards are dissolved almost always because a large amount of the members moved away. The areas of Canada which are growing the most are the major cities in Alberta and Quebec.
