Since 1910.

The Seaforth Highlanders of Canada are Vancouver’s infantry regiment, based in Vancouver, British Columbia.  First established on November 24, 1910 by a group of members in the local Vancouver Scottish community, these individuals sought to raise a local Canadian Highland Regiment in association with The Seaforth Highlanders of the Imperial Service. 

ASSOCIATION NEWS

The Association.

The Seaforth Highlanders of Canada Regimental Association was formed in 1917 primarily to promote and maintain the comradeship of the war time years.  When the Regiment returned from active service it also took on the responsibility of providing assistance to members and their families who needed help in readjusting to civilian life.  The organization’s role has remained more or less the same since that time although the nature of the support it provides to the regiment and its extended family has changed over the years the principal of “Once a Seaforth - always a Seaforth” remains.

The Armoury

In 1931 a group of 16 prominent citizens and Seaforth officers formed the Vancouver Armoury Association, amongst them the future Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, E.W. Hamber and former Vancouver Mayor, W.H. Malkin. If Ottawa wouldn’t build an armoury for the Seaforths, they would raise the money to do it themselves. They hired an architect, and began scouting for possible locations.
