Clan Donald Canada Corporation is a not-for-profit membership organization dedicated to the preservation of the legacy of our great and storied clan. The MacDonalds once controlled a sea-Kingdom along the West Coast and Islands of Gaelic Scotland. The rulers of this Lordship of the Isles were known in Gaelic as Triath nan Eilean or Rìgh Innse Gall. As head of the Gaels, the MacDonalds were great patrons and supporters of the Gaelic arts and that tradition continues today.

After the fall of the second Jacobite rebellion in 1745 and 1746 and later as a result of the Highland Clearances, many Clan Donald kinsfolk and their fellow Hebrideans and Highlanders were forced to leave their homeland. Many of them Came to Canada and helped to build this great nation.

Thank you for visiting our NEW and improved official website for Clan Donald Canada Corporation. Enjoy your stay here with CDC and feel free to explore throughout the whole website and learn more about the Macdonalds (and their many septs) and their impact on Highland and world history.
