Welcome to the Order of St. George, the Canadian Priory. The inspiration for the foundation of the Order are the Statutes which defined the secular Fraternal Society founded by King Károly Róbert of Hungary in 1326. Linked to its Christian foundations and to the chivalric code, the Order of St. George has grown to encompass people of many faiths, and maintains its timeless commitments to faithful service and to helping people in need. The Order's Foundation contributes funding in support of our wounded or fallen military personnel and their immediate families through such agencies as the Military
Families Fund and the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre (Veterans & Community). The Order also offers its support to programs of Royal Canadian Sea, Army and Air Cadet Corps, and the Junior Rangers, as well as to other charitable organizations. We invite you to explore the Order in the following pages, and invite queries and comments from you should we have piqued your interest.
