Biographical history

The Canadian Club of New Westminster and the Fraser Valley was formed on February 15, 1968. Its inaugural dinner meeting occurred on December 2, 1968. Present at this meeting was the Governor-General, Roland Michener, who in his capacity as Patron of the Canadian Clubs officially inaugurated the Club. The Club was initially known as the Fraser Canadian Club, but that was later changed to the present name. According to its constitution, the Clubs purpose is to foster patriotism by encouraging the study of institutions, history, arts, literature, public affairs and the resources of Canada with the endeavour to unite Canadians for the welfare and progress of the nation as may be desirable and expedient. One of the ways the Club carries out this purpose is by arranging series of dinner meetings. The Canadian Club invites speakers to these meetings in order to discuss a topic that is within their area of competence (i.e. business, politics, science, etc.) Besides the dinner meetings, the Club arranges trips and outings to various locations. The Club is also involved with the annual Citizenship Court ceremonies in New Westminster. The Club is autonomous, but belongs to the national body, the Association of Canadian Clubs. The Association of Canadian Clubs provides the local Canadian Clubs with offers of speakers and also assists them in other ways.
