The Canadian Nationalist Party also known as the Nationalist Party of Canada was established in September 1933 by William Whittaker, an Englishman. In 1934 the RCMP estimated the group had over 3,000 active members.
In October of 1936 Henry Beamish of The Britons spoke at one of their rallies. The party issued a monthly paper called The Canadian Nationalist.
Most of the party's leadership was Anglo-Saxon however a large number of their members came from Eastern European immigrant communities.
In 1938 the party merged with the Parti National Social Chrétien and other National Socialist groups--such as the Swastika Clubs--forming the National Unity Party.
