Dates of existence



Home Children Builders of Canada, Quebec Chapter was established by Sarge and Pauline Bampton in 1993, and dissolved in 2011, as a chapter for Home Children Canada, working in close partnership with David and Kay Lorente. Elburn "Sarge" Bampton is the son of two Home Children sent to Canada from Great Britain at the turn of the twentieth century. Sarge and his wife Pauline began to develop the chapter after Sarge spent twenty years trying to find his family. The program was developed to help find other home children and help families, as well as Home Children, find their loved ones. In accordance with Home Children Canada's mandate and vision the Quebec chapter aims to help home children and their descendants discover their past, tell their story to as many people as possible, erase the stigma so unfairly attached, and to replace that stigma with justifiable pride. Their objective is to bring togher home children, their families, descendants, and people with whome they once lived, along with hosting reunions. The Bampton's offered free assistance to those wishing to trace family members primarily through personal correspondence, but also through the use of local newspapers, radio and lectures as avenues for locating lost home children.

Sarge Bampton passed away at the Wales Home in Richmond the 10 October 2014.
