The Canadian Daughters' League originated in Vancouver, B.C., at a meeting convened by the Native Sons of Canada held November 22, 1922. The aims and objectives of the League were to a) promote a non-partisan, non-sectarian influence in the administration of affairs in Canada, b) create and foster a distinctively Canadian national spirit and develop Canadian institutions, literature, art and music, and c) generally promote the interests of Canada and Canadians by advancing and supporting educational projects that would benefit all Canadians. The Nanaimo branch was established in 1961. The first president was Billy Legros.

Fonds consists of records created by the Canadian Daughter's League including constitution and bylaws, rituals, provincial council convention programmes, minutes, notes and scrapbooks. Also includes the notes and promotional items of the 1986 convention, and the 1972 convention hosted by Assembly No. 72 Nanaimo.
