2016 United Empire Loyalists’ Assoc of Canada Conference, July 7-10.

UELA-Loyalists-Lighthouses-Lobsters-201506UELAC Annual AGM and Conference, July 7-10, 2016

Summerside, Prince Edward Island

The three Atlantic Branches of UELAC will be welcoming UELAC members and guests from everywhere to the 2016 Dominion Convention and AGM at the historic Loyalist Country Inn, one of the Lakeview Hotels and Resorts, in Summerside, Prince Edward Island, Canada. This island’s small population, independent since 1769, was increased by about 500 LOYALISTS who were part of the evacuation of New York in 1783. Some came directly, and others via Port Roseway (Shelburne) and elsewhere. The loyalists who did settle on Ile Saint-Jean (present-day Prince Edward Island) had a difficult time getting clear title to the land they were granted by the British.
