History of the Saskatchewan Branch
Originally, the Saskatchewan Branch of the UELAC was formed in 1932. The Branch was active for a few years and then interest waned, the membership got older, and the Branch ceased to be active.
On June 2, 1984 the Regina Branch was issued their current charter by Dominion Office of the United Empire Loyalists' Association of Canada. It was comprised of 21 Saskatchewan members. At present there are 73 members in the branch from all over Saskatchewan. Accordingly, in 2010 the Branch applied for and was granted the Charter to once again become the Saskatchewan Branch, which reflects our membership being truly province-wide.
In the last few years, the Branch has become very active and in 2005 hosted the National Conference of the UELAC in Regina. As well, a very impressive Cairn was unveiled at the Conference paying tribute to those Loyalist ancestors that helped settle Saskatchewan. The cairn is situated on the Legislative Grounds in Regina on the shoreline of Wascana.
Currently, there are five meetings per year and also a Christmas dinner. The annual meeting is held on the third Saturday in February, Other meetings are in April, June, September and November. All meetings are on the third Saturday with the exception of June, which will be held on June 19, United Empire Loyalist Day in Saskatchewan. The Christmas dinner is held in December in Regina.
