In 1883 Quebec City was the first Canadian branch to teach first aid courses, followed shortly thereafter by the Kingston, Ontario branch. In the next 10 years, St. John grew to be a national organization and by 1892 had 12 branches teaching first aid from coast-to-coast. In those early years, alongside the continued growth in first aid training, St. John also began a proud tradition of volunteer work in our communities. Soon the volunteers of St. John became a common and welcome sight in times of emergency in communities across the country.
