Cascadia Priory is the West Coast Priory of the Grand Priory of the Order of St George for Canada and the Americas, a registered Canadian not-for-profit that exists to promote and pursue the timeless traditions of chivalry by compassion and supporting works of charity specific to the men and women in uniform who serve their respective communities.
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.
