The upcoming meeting of our Manitoba Loyalist Branch will be held on Saturday, May 4, at 10:30 at the offices of the Manitoba Genealogical Society at 1045 St. James Street, Unit E, Winnipeg. Following our business session, we will be privileged to hear a presentation by Gordon Goldsborough, an active member of the Manitoba Historical Society. He has performed a wonderful service by preserving aspects of our province's history that otherwise might have disappeared into the mists of time. Many of you will be aware of his publications: "Abandoned Manitoba”, More Abandoned Manitoba”, and most recently, “On the Road to Abandoned Manitoba”. At our meeting his topic will be “Abandoned Schools in Manitoba”. 

United Empire Loyalists'

Association of Canada

Manitoba Branch


  • To identify and unite those descendants of Loyalists living in Manitoba

  • To offer assistance with the research of Loyalist ancestry

  • To present educational programs relating to the Loyalist legacy

  • To inform current generations of the significant contributions made by the Loyalists and their descendants to the formation and growth of Canada

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: 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. The Winnipeg Branch of the association was formed in 1932 and received its charter in 1937. In 1997, it was renamed the Manitoba Branch.
