Beyond clowns, tassled hats, and little motorcycles, Shriners is a philanthropic organization providing pediatric health care for children without regard to race, colour, creed, sex, sect, disability, national origin or ability of a patient or family to pay.

Locally, Gizeh Shriners of BC-Yukon started in Victoria, on June 11, 1902, and now represents the largest geographical jurisdiction in the Shriners organization. In 1942, Gizeh headquarters moved from Victoria to Vancouver, and to Burnaby in 1968. There are now over 60 clubs and units affiliated with Gizeh throughout BC and Yukon.
