|"Those Loyalists who have adhered to the Unity of the Empire, and joined the Royal Standard before the Treaty of Separation in the year 1783, and all their Children and their Descendants by either sex, are to be distinguished by the following Capitals, affixed to their names: UE. Alluding to their great principle The Unity of the Empire."
Proclaimed by Lord Dorchester in 1789 for loyalty to the crown, the UE is Canada's only hereditary title and descends through both male and female lines. The United Empire Loyalists' Association of Canada was formed in 1914 by Loyalist descendants and the Manitoba Branch was chartered in 1933.
