The Canada Club and its members are deeply saddened by the passing of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh. His Royal Highness was the royal patron of The Canada Club since 1954, having attended his first event in 1947.

About The Canada ClUb
Few clubs can claim, as the Canada Club can, to have existed for over 200 years as a purely social club bringing people together for wonderful dinners and to hear notable speakers.
Founded in 1810 by fur traders who wintered in London to sell the furs trapped in the Canadian territories, the Canada Club is older than Canada itself and is the oldest Canadian institution outside of Canada. Since its early beginnings, the Canada Club has hosted a combination of Great Dinners and Great Speeches, and through the years has been a London tradition for Canadians as well as their British and International friends.
