    Administrative history

    The Canadian Patriotic Fund Association was organised in January 1900 to provide relief funds for Canadians wounded or disabled in the South African War and for the dependents of those killed. In August 1914 it was dissolved and a new body known as the Canadian Patriotic Fund was incorporated. The object of the new body was to provide assistance for dependents of Canadians on active service with the forces of the British Empire or Great Britain's allies during the First World War.

    The Athabasca or local branch of the North Alberta Canadian Patriotic Fund was formed at a public meeting held on Monday, November 9, 1914. The local branch was governed by a provincial executive with a head office located in Edmonton, Alberta.
