Dates of existence



During World War I Patricia veterans in Ottawa began to gather informally, and the Patricia Club of Ottawa was formed 27 December 1917. On 7 February 1918 its constitution was adopted. Other clubs were later formed in some of the larger Canadian cities, including Winnipeg, which was the Home Base of the the Regiment during the inter-war years. These clubs provided personal assistance to veterans and their families as well as other public services. Following the Second World War, on 18 May 1946, Hamilton Gault organized the first meeting of the PPCLI Association which now included soldiers still serving with the Regiment. After the Korean War, on 13 September 1953, the PPCLI Association was incorporated and the Winnipeg Branch was one of its affiliates. According to the 1985 constitution of the Association, the Winnipeg Branch was renamed the Manitoba Branch. According to the 1990 constitution, it was renamed the Manitoba/NW Ontario Branch. According to its newsletter banner, it was styled Manitoba and North Western Ontario Branch (1999-2002) and Manitoba and Northwest Ontario Branch (2005-2011).
