Toward Queen and Country
He should be loyal in thought, word and action toward the Crown, being Protestant; seeking the prosperity and integrity of the Constitutional Monarchy; strengthening it's concepts and supporting it's principles.

I, [your full name] do solemnly and voluntarily promise that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty The Queen of Canada, and to her lawful heirs and successors in the sovereignty of Great Britain and this Dominion, so long as she or they shall support and maintain the Protestant Faith.
That I will, to the utmost of my power, defend them against all conspiracies and attempts which I shall know to be against her or any of them. That I will steadily maintain the connection between Canada, the Mother Country, and all members of the Commonwealth beyond the seas, and be ever ready to resist all attempts to weaken British influence or dismember the Commonwealth of Nations.
That I will be true and faithful to every brother Orangeman in all just actions, neither wronging him nor knowing him to be wronged or injured without giving him due notice thereof, and preventing it if in my power.
I further promise that I will honour and respect the chastity of womanhood.
That I will always remember and hold sacred the name of King William III, Prince of Orange, for his military victories which furthered the cause of civil and religious liberty for all mankind. I therefore solemnly promise, if in my power, to commemorate his victory over James at the Boyne, in Ireland, by assembling with my brethren in their Lodge-room on the twelfth day of July in every year, or on such day as my Lodge, by resolution, shall appoint for such commemoration.
That I am now, and ever shall be a true and faithful Protestant. I shall teach my children the principles of that faith and educate them in Public or Protestant schools, except where such schools do not exist.
That I will resist by all lawful means, the ascendancy, extension and encroachment of any religious, political or other body of men seeking to deprive us of our liberties, at the same time being careful always to abstain from all unkind words and actions towards their members.
That I am not a suspended or expelled member of the Loyal Orange Association and I will do my utmost to support and maintain the Loyal Orange Association; observe and abide by its constitution and laws; obey all regular summonses, and pay all just dues, if in my power.
That I will not unite with, nor acknowledge any body of men purporting to be Orangemen, who do not hold a warrant from some Grand Lodge recognized by the Imperial Grand Orange Council of the World; I will also use all my influence to promote fellowship and brotherly love amongst my brethren.
Lastly, I will never in any way disclose or reveal, any of the signs, words or tokens of the Association, unless I shall be authorized to do so by the proper authorities. So help me God, and keep me steadfast in this, my Orangeman’s Obligation.
The Candidate shall seal his Obligation by kissing the Holy Bible.
