In addition to electing a Chief for the Dominion of Canada, it was recommended that there should also be elected one hundred and eleven subordinate chieftains of provinces, electoral divisions, counties, localities and townships to represent all the Frasers, estimated by John Fraser de Berry to be about 12,000.
We are fortunate that the members of CFS of Canada, some of whom are descended from the dedicated people involved in these early Clan Fraser organizations, are very much interested in learning more about their heritage in Canada and Scotland.
It is probably safe to say that the majority of the descendants of Scottish immigrants to Canada have benefitted from the courage, hardship and perseverance of their ancestors in forging new lives while clinging to the old culture and traditions.

 Fabled 1911 Canadian Dollar to be Auctioned in January
Struck as a pattern in 1911, this issue has carved a unique niche in Canadian numismatics and is, without a doubt, the most storied issue in the entire Canadian coin series.
It is generally thought that the dies for the 1911 Dollar were prepared in London and the coins produced in London.
The existence of the 1911 Dollar was pure speculation until the noted London coin dealer, B.A. Seaby, announced the acquisition of "The Emperor of Canadian Coins" in 1960.

 Canada - Coat of Arms
In 1922, the shield of the arms of Canada replaced the quartered shield badge on the Canadian Red Ensign, Blue Ensign and the flag of the Governor-General.
The arrangement was based on the mistaken belief that putting the white band at the top of the shield was analogous to the label of an eldest son on the arms of his parents.
On 25 February 1931, slightly in advance of the Statute of Westminster, which gave legal form to Balfour's 1926 definition of Dominion status, the 1922 flag of the Governor-General was replaced by the royal crest on a blue flag, to show that he now represented the sovereign, and not the British government.
