Dates of existence


The Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry Service Club of Toronto was organized during World War I to provide personal assistance to families and widows of PPCLI combatants and returned soldiers. It was incorporated in 1919 and began organizing annual reunion dinners in 1920. Following the Second World War, on 18 May 1946, Hamilton Gault organized the first meeting of the PPCLI Association which unified the local Patricia Clubs and included soldiers still serving with the Regiment. After the Korean War, on 13 September 1953, the PPCLI Association was incorporated and the PPCLI Service Club of Toronto became the Toronto Branch of the PPCLI Association.
