The first Zionist society was established in Canada in 1898. Shortly thereafter, other societies were formed in Toronto, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Vancouver and smaller centres across Canada. In 1889, the societies united together to form the Federation of Zionist Societies of Canada. The group was ultimately concerned with collecting money for purchasing land in Palestine. The first executive director was appointed in 1917. In 1925, the Zionist Organization of Canada succeeded the Federation as the official voice of Zionism in Canada. In 1967, its head office moved from Montreal to Toronto.
This collection consists of the minute books of the Federation of Zionist Societies of Canada between 1899 to 1913.
