After the American Revolution, more than 80,000 United Empire Loyalists remaining loyal to King George III, left America beginning in 1783.  Do you have Loyalist ancestry?  Would you like to learn more about this period of history?

The Victoria Branch of the United Empire Loyalists’ Association of Canada invites you to consider joining.  Your membership includes a fall and spring issue of The Loyalist Gazette, minutes from our four regular meetings each year, and our branch newsletter.  Additionally, a weekly newsletter entitled Loyalist Trails is emailed to you to keep you up-to-date about Association news.
