Spearheaded by Patrick (Skedron) Smith a small group of Old Boys in Ontario got together on 29th April 1984 and selected a chairperson, lawyer Peter Rickards, to oversee a Steering Committee comprised of Neil Dalhouse, Robbie Vernon, Winston Cooke, Roy Mc Catty, Dennis Chang, Ray Jackson and Patrick Smith himself.

They would during the ensuing year draft and framework a Constitution, recruit potential members for the formation of a chapter and also engage in some fellowship and fund-raising activities for the school.

On March 3, 1985 the Chapter was formed at the first AGM with the Election of Peter Rickards as its first President and a Board comprising the original Steering Committee members.

From those humble beginnings and guided by its Presidents and Board, the Association and its members have become a heavy provider of financial support to the school. It grants a C$1500 annual scholarship to the children and grandchildren of Ontario members.
