Name of creator
The Canadian Daughters League (CDL) originated on November 22, 1922 in Vancouver at a meeting convened by the Native Sons of Canada. The gathering was the organizing of Canadian born women striving to work along similar lines to the Native Sons of Canada. The charter was granted at Ottawa to the CDL on June 20, 1923. The aims and objectives of the League were 1) to promote a non partisan, non sectarian influence in the administration of affairs in the Dominion of Canada, 2) to create and foster a distinctively Canadian national spirit and develop Canadian institutions, literature, art and music, and 3) to generally promote the interests of the Dominion of Canada and Canadians. Membership is restricted to those of Canadian birth. Assembly No.1 was formed at the very first meeting. Six more assemblies formed in B.C. that same year. The Moose Jaw CDL , Assembly No.41 formed in 1931. The Moose Jaw Assembly spent countless hours fund raising and made generous contributions in the community, province and country. Included were donations to the national cancer research fund, equipment purchased for hospitals, and scholarships to students. There is no information when the club disbanded.
