The Richelieu International was founded in 1944 and the Club Richelieu Welland was born in 1957.

As there were several English service Clubs, these eleven people saw the need to create a francophone service Club to curb the exodus of francophones to English-speaking clubs. These eleven founders believed there was a great need to serve the francophone population of Welland.

We pay tribute to our eleven founding members, they are:

R/Lionel Beauparlant
R/Jacques Dubois
R/Armand Gervais
R/Loyola Lemelin
R/Bernard Rodrigue
R/Florent Lalonde

R/Arsène Bisson
R/René Gauthier
R/Roland Hardy
R/Roméo Parent
R/Roger Babin
