Our Objectives:

  • To preserve the history of the Loyalists by collecting artifacts, publishing historical and genealogical books, and erecting monuments and memorials in Canada to perpetuate the memory of the United Empire Loyalists.
  • To seek out and preserve the final resting places of the Loyalists within Kingston and District area (Frontenac and Lennox & Addington Counties of Ontario).
  • To increase public awareness of the Loyalist contribution to Canada by encouraging a stronger emphasis on Canadian, particularly Loyalist, history in the school system and by participating in projects that celebrate the memory of the United Empire Loyalists.
