History

Loyal Orange District Lodge D.83 (District of North Nipissing) was a district lodge of the Orange Order, a Protestant fraternal organization, which had jurisdiction over primary (local) lodges in the present-day Nipissing District. The District Lodge was founded in 1911 following a resolution by the Loyal Orange County Lodge of Nipissing East to establish three district lodges for the North, South, and East Nipissing areas.

District Lodge D. 83 had jurisdiction over the Orange Order's District of North Nipissing, which covered the area immediately to the north of Lake Nipissing and along the Mattawa River, stretching from Cache Bay at its western boundary to Eau Claire in the east. The following primary (local) lodges were under the jurisdiction of District Lodge D.83: Loyal Orange Lodge No. 876 (North Bay), No. 1070 (Cache Bay), No. 1682 (Four Mile Lake), No. 1709 (Sturgeon Falls), No. 2104 (Rutherglen), No. 2189 (North Bay), No. 2287 (Eau Claire), and No. 2992 (Redbridge). The membership of the District Lodge was made up of Orangemen from its primary lodges, and the Lodge's annual meetings were held in North Bay or other communities within the District. After a long decline in the membership of its primary lodges, District Lodge D.83 was officially dissolved on April 21, 1969.
