The United Empire Loyalists' (UEL) Association of Canada Colonel Edward Jessup Branch:

This branch was formed in 1968. An estimated 7,000 Loyalists settled in Upper Canada (Ontario) in the late 1700s after the signing of the Treaty of Paris in 1783, when Britain recognized the independence of the United States. According to their website, their presence had a profound impact on the nation that would become Canada. Between four and six million Canadians can trace their ancestral roots back to one of more of those early Loyalist families.
