Our Mission is to preserve, promote and celebrate the history and traditions of the United Empire Loyalists.
We will accomplish our Mission by:
1) Uniting, in a Canadian-based association, descendants of families who remained loyal to the British crown during the American Revolutionary War, as well as persons interested in the Loyalist era and early Canadian history;
2) Supporting the collection and cataloguing of documents, books, artefacts, memorabilia and genealogical data relating to the United Empire Loyalists;
3) Facilitating and publishing research related to the United Empire Loyalists in the form of historical and family research journals, books, newsletters and digital media;
4) Providing Loyalist education resource materials and encouraging research through scholarship support;
5) Assisting in the construction and preservation of Loyalist monuments and memorials in Canada;
6) Participating in projects and activities which honour and celebrate the legacy of the United Empire Loyalists.
About Our Charity
The United Empire Loyalists' Association of Canada came into being with a Federal Charter, passed by Parliament on May 27th, 1914. Now with 28 branches across Canada, UELAC strives to enrich the lives of Canadians through fostering public awareness of our national history, and, in particular, of the United Empire Loyalists and their contributions to Canada, while also celebrating their memory and perpetuating their heritage as an integral part of the Canadian identity. Donations may be made to the General Fund, Memorial Fund, Scholarship Fund or a specified fund managed by UELAC.
