The Royal Purple of Canada was founded on September 11, 1914 and was incorporated under a special Dominion of Canada Charter with the Elks of Canada.  The first lodge was set up in Vancouver, B.C.  Working diligently to develop the organization across Canada, Alice Morrow became the first Supreme Honoured Lady (National President).


Since inception, the Royal Purple of Canada has grown to over 200 Lodges and 7,000 Members.  Membership means you will receive a warm welcome when visiting any Lodge, a network of friends that you can tap into anywhere in Canada.  Extending this network further is our partner Organization, The Elks of Canada.


The Members of Royal Purple of Canada focus primarily on the promotion and support of community needs across Canada through Local and National programs.  Some of these programs include:


I Star Institute for Stuttering

The Elks and Royal Purple Fund for Children (funds are made available to any needy child in Canada)


In order to support our many charities and activities, we must raise funds.  Since this is done in a variety of ways, there is always an opportunity for members to participate in an activity that suits everyone.  It is a great way to develop the camaraderie that lasts a lifetime. 


Fun!  Throughout the year you will have many opportunities to relax and have fun.  Some events involve our Brother Elks.


Meetings are held every second Tuesday of the month at the Stavely Community Hall, time: 7:00 p.m.
