As part of the celebrations commemorating the 60th anniversary of the Canadian Association, a new book by Dr. Robert Pichette was launched at the September 2013 investiture dinner in Ottawa. The addition of an illustrated armorial section is included to augment the one published for the 50th anniversary, and is a fitting remembrance of the Order's honorable tradition in heraldry.

In the introduction, FrÓ Matthew Festing writes:
”I am very pleased to introduce this short history which outlines not only the progression of the Canadian Association over the past 60 years, but also the various links and accomplishments of those who helped, not insignificantly, with the formation of Canada and are embedded in the countryʼs history... Beginnings and Establishment: The Order of Malta in Canada will serve to provide additional enlightenment to the diverse record of history embodied in the Sovereign Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, of Rhodes and of Malta.“

Copies are available for purchase in Canada at $35 each and in the USA at $40 (shipping included).  Payment may be made online via the donations tab ~ reference ʻBeginnings and Establishmentʼ
