    Canadian Red Cross Society: In 1906, the Canadian Red Cross Society was founded, following the formation of a Canadian branch of the British Red Cross Society in Toronto in 1896, and in 1909 it was incorporated by Act of Parliament (8-9 Edw. VII, Cap. 68). It was admitted as an independent member of the League of Red Cross Societies in 1919, and following the Imperial conference of 1926, recognition of its independent status was formally accorded by the international committee.
