What is the St. Andrew's Society of Toronto
Formed in 1836 at a time of some political upheaval, Scots families met at St. Andrew’s Church and decided that a Society should be formed so that, as a united group, they could raise money to assist new immigrants from Scotland who were in distressed circumstances.

Who are the 48th Highlanders of Canada
The 48th Highlanders of Canada is a Canadian Forces Primary Reserve (i.e., part-time militia) infantry regiment based in Toronto, parading out of Moss Park Armoury. The regiment is part of 4th Canadian Division’s 32 Canadian Brigade Group.

Ever since its formation in 1891, the 48th Highlanders have had a longstanding tradition of participation in the life of its parent city, Toronto. The regiment has participated in community functions for over 100 years, in addition to fulfilling its operational duties around the world. Since its inception, the men and women of the regiment have been among the first Canadians to step forward and answer their nation’s call. Members of the regiment have served on Operation RECUPERATION, in the Golan Heights, Korea, South Africa, Cambodia, Cyprus, Bosnia, and Afghanistan to name only a few and of course, both World Wars and the Boer War.
