Welcome to
The Friends of the Loyalist Collection at Brock University web page.

Rodney T. Craig, Chairman

We are a Registered Canadian Charitable Organization established in 2002, with a mandate to create a library of original United Empire Loyalist documents on microfilm housed at Brock University in the heart of the beautiful Niagara peninsula.

It is estimated that approximately five thousand refugees choosing to remain loyal to the British Crown settled in Niagara at the conclusion of the American Revolution in 1783.

This collection provides an insight into their history as they developed this Province and Country, and Brock University is the ideal location for it. It is open for academic, students and the public.
We would love to have you visit us and explore the history of the United Empire Loyalists.
