History

Organized in Toronto on June 27, 1876, the Sons of Scotland Benevolent Association is a fraternal association of Scottish people, their spouses, and their descendants in Canada. Its functions are to "preserve and promote Scottish heritage and culture in Canada" by maintaining Scottish historical, literary, and musical traditions, and to promote among its members a feeling of community and comradery. Additionally, the Sons of Scotland is a fraternal benefit association; membership dues entitle members to a certain amount of insurance coverage, which can be increased according to their needs.

The Sons of Scotland was incorporated by the Province of Ontario in 1880, and by the Dominion of Canada in 1937. It is governed by a central Executive Board in Toronto called the Grand Camp, which was established in 1878 and is headed by a Grand Chief and a Grand Chieftain. Grand Camp Executive officers are elected for three year terms. The Association is then divided into districts. There are currently four districts: Toronto District No. 7, Montreal District No. 14, Winnipeg District No. 15, and British Columbia District No. 16. The districts, in turn, consist of several camps, called subordinate camps. Each district and camp is governed by an Executive Board, which is headed by a chief and a chieftain. Executive officers of district and subordinate camps are elected on an annual basis.

In addition to regular meetings, the Association organizes and hosts social events, such as dances, dinners, picnics, and games.
