The Captain Frederick Bond Chapter of the IODE (Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire) is a women's charitable organization. The Captain F. Bond Chapter was founded in Guelph on December 2 ,1920. Its charter was granted on December 13, 1920. The name of the chapter was selected to honour a native Guelph son, who died in 1917 from wounds suffered at Paschendale. His mother accepted his Military Cross medal posthumously.
The mission of the IODE is to improve the quality of life for children, youth, and those in need, through educational, social service, and citizenship programs. The motto of the Captain F. Bond Chapter is: I serve.
Local projects for the chapter have included the preparation of grooming kits for women's shelters, welcoming of immigrants, the provision of scholarships for local area high school students, prizes for the Kiwanis Music Festival, sponsorship of women's shelters and the purchase of major equipment for Guelph hospitals.
The chapter also operates the Opportunity Shop on Speedvale Avenue in Guelph, which sells donated used clothing, jewellry and small appliances. The proceeds of the sales from the shop goes to local community charities. The Chapter has since disbanded.
