Administrative history

The Canadian Club of Vancouver was organized in 1906 by F.C. Wade and others following the establishment of similar clubs in other Canadian cities. The Canadian Club Movement, which began in Hamilton, was designed to foster patriotism and a a sense of Canadian identity. The Club held meetings and luncheons at which speakers addressed the membership on topics of local, national and international interest. The Club also sponsored community service projects and special events, and assisted the Citizenship Court in Vancouver by welcoming new citizens. The Canadian Club was divided into the Men's Canadian Club and the Women's Canadian Club in 1908 and 1909; the two Clubs were merged in 1980.
