The corps was formed in Nova Scotia and elsewhere across Canada in 1937, on the instigation of the Canadian Government, to find employment for worthy older veterans.

Its organization was patterned along military lines of the British Corps of Commissionaires, founded in 1859.

The Black-Binney House was acquired by the Board of Governors in 1965, and was restored as an historic building, for use as Divisional Headquarters.

It is dedicated to the service of veterans as a Centennial project for 1967.

Colonel S.C. Oland, V.D., C.D.
