Canadian Branch

of the Clan Macpherson Association


Hello and welcome to the Canadian branch of the CMA (Clan Macpherson Association) website.

Here you will find information about our history, upcoming events, and the Canadian Branch Council contacts.

There are currently 160 members across Canada. Membership runs from January 1st to December 31st of the current year. There are application forms for New and for Renewing Members found within our pages here. If you have any questions specifically regarding joining, please contact our Registrar at

Clan members enjoy the Annual Creag Dhubh - direct from Scotland - and the Canadian quarterly newsletter, The Green Banner.

Highland Games have always been a great way to reconnect with our members, celebrate Scottish games and food and provide information to anyone searching their Macpherson history. A Clan tent is set up by Clan member volunteers at several Highland Games across Canada. We do not attend all Highland Games but encourage you to check one out near you and experience a little of Scotland.

The highlight of the Clan’s year is the Gathering. I attended my first Gathering in Scotland last year and had a wonderful time. Here in Canada, we hold a Gathering every year but every fifth year something special happens. Our US cousins join with us to celebrate at a Joint Gathering. The Joint Canadian/US Gathering had to be cancelled for this year but is rescheduled to take place September 24-26, 2021. Please keep this weekend open for lots of socializing, dancing, wine and whisky tasting events in lovely Niagara Falls, Ontario. Watch the News tab for updates and upcoming events.
