The Elks of Canada was formed in 1912. It is the largest, all-Canadian, fraternal organization in Canada;
there are nearly 300 lodges and close to 20,000 members across the country. The Perth Elks Lodge #362 is nestled on the banks of the St John River, in Perth-Andover, New Brunswick, Canada.
Perth Elks - Contribution to the Vision
The Perth Elk's Lodge #362 raises money for hearing-impaired children, and financially assists them in a number of ways, including: sponsorship for hearing-impaired camp, and helping to offset the cost of supplies for hearing-impaired people. These supplies might include hearing aids, custom door bells / phones, and TDD machines.
Our members are committed to our Vision of being the most progressive family-focused organization in Canada, meeting community and member needs and expectations.
Over the years, changes have been made to accomplish this Vision. In 1998 a referendum was passed by the membership removing the word “male” from the Constitution—permitting women to join the Elk’s.
