History

The Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire was organized in 1900 as a patriotic, non-sectarian non-partisan philanthropic organization of women who were British subjects. As such, the IODE provided assistance to the Imperial armed forces during the Boer War, World War I and World War II. They also provided civilian relief aid to the people of Vietnam. In addition the organization has provided assistance to the infirm and poor, and to university students (in the form of bursaries). They have also been active in civil defence, providing help to new immigrants, and funds and materials to schools across Canada.
