We are an organization created to promote the interests and identity of Western Canada's ethnic founders, the pioneers who left Europe to settle in a new world. As the direct inheritors of an intergenerational trust, we owe it to those pioneers who laid the foundations of this country at the price of their very own lives and fortunes to pass the vision of their great endeavour on to those who will follow. We stand on the shoulders of giants, to them we owe all that we have and all that we are. Though we ourselves can never pay our debt back to them directly, we can keep the flame of our ancestor’s memory burning and continue their sacred work. As their descendants, we have the responsibility to ensure that their toil and sacrifice were not in vain, as well as the responsibility to preserve our identity and make this nation a better place for future generations.
