Kawartha Branch Information

Mission Statement

We believe that the study of the United Empire Loyalists and their contribution to the development of Canada should be promoted, encouraged and communicated to the public through education, genealogical research, the teaching of Loyalist history in schools and the preservation of Loyalist records and artifacts; for the legacy from our Loyalist ancestors has been a significant factor in forming the strong roots that makes Canada the best country in the world in which to live.

Branch Territory

Anyone can join one or more Branches of the U.E.L.A.C. It is not necessary to live in the general area. But for the purpose of attending meetings, participating in their functions and having access to their facilities including their Library, it is wise to join a group close to where you reside.

The Kawartha Branch official area starts at Lake Ontario to the south and extends north until you reach Algonquin Park. The east / west boundaries are easily defined by the County borders. To the east we have Northumberland, Peterborough and Haliburton Counties while to the west there is Victoria and Durham Counties. (See map graphic below.)

Guests are always welcome at our meetings.
