Scholarships and Bursaries
The members of the Kawartha Branch of the United Empire Loyalists have a common interest in researching those people who remained loyal to the British during the American Revolution and who came to Canada during and immediately following that war. These refugees represented the first significant number of European settlers, Blacks and Native Refugees, who came to what was then known as Quebec, renamed Upper and Lower Canada in 1791, and the Provinces of Ontario and Quebec since 1867. They and their descendants made enormous contributions to the development of the Ontario we know today. Preserving artifacts and original records, as well as genealogical research, are of primary importance to our association.
