Crest: Upon a helmet mantled Azure doubled Argent wreathed of these colours on a mount growing thereon strawberries proper a cougar couchant reguardant Argent.

Motto: BUILDING ON A VISION;

Granted:14th November 1997, Volume III, Page 267 of the Canadian Public Register of Arms.

The arms are based on the plain arms of Fraser; Azure, three fraises or cinquefoils Argent, currently borne by The Lady Saltoun of Abernethy, Chief of Clan Fraser, suitably differenced.
The chevron is masoned to reflect my 35 year involvement in the masonry construction industry in Canada. The charges on the chevron, two Dogwood flowers, represent my birthplace in Vancouver, British Columbia and my intention to return there eventually. The Dogwood is the official flower of British Columbia. The Trillium flower, is the official flower of Ontario where I have lived and worked for the past 30 years. The crest represents wild British Columbian strawberries (pun on Fraser) growing on a mount, with a Cougar (Mountain Lion). The Cougar is the collar badge of the Seaforth Highlanders of Canada, in which I served from 1944 to 1951 as a drummer and Drum Major in the Cadet Pipes and Drums. The motto 'Building on a Vision' is based on the inherent nature of a descendant of expatriate Scots, determined to make things happen, hopefully for the better.
