Administrative history

Royal Scarlet Chapter D. 83 (District of North Nipissing) was an assembly of members of the Protestant fraternal organization the Loyal Order of Orange who held the Order's highest degree, the Royal Scarlet. The Chapter's first meeting was on January 14, 1912 in North Bay. The date of its disbanding is unknown.

The Orange Order's District of Nipissing North, to which the Chapter belonged, was centred on North Bay and 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 membership of the Chapter was made up of Orangemen from primary (local) Orange lodges throughout this area, including: 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).

Meetings of the Royal Scarlet Chapter of Nipissing East District were held monthly and usually took place at the Orange Hall in North Bay, although meetings were occasionally held in other communities including Mattawa, Sturgeon Falls, and Eau Claire.
