Welcome to the Order Sons and Daughters of Italy of Canada

We are an organization devoted to the celebration of Italian heritage, community service, and charitable good works. As a national organization, we are made up of lodges scattered throughout Canada. Our rich history as an Order began over 100 years ago, with our first lodge established in 1915.
