While conforming to the national organization’s objectives and programs, local branches are self-governing and produce their own activities and events. Branches must hold at least one meeting a year, but almost all meet every, or every second, month.
Branch activities have included extensive research projects, such as the King’s Names project undertaken by Sir Guy Carleton Branch in Ottawa. In that endeavor, the branch is attempting to produce a computer data base which will index every possible Loyalist mentioned in the records of the British Army at New York City during the Revolution. To date, thousands have been indexed. Other branches have erected plaques commemorating Loyalists or Loyalist events, and supported local historical and educational activities. Branch activities are only limited by the imagination of its members.
