J. A. Sloan (or Sloane?), a representative of the Aero Club of Manitoba, Canada, traveled to Quincy, Ill., in late February 1908 to order two balloons for the club. This suggests the club's founding before February 1908. J. A. Sloane was a representative of the club, 1908.

Possibly this club was called the Aero Club of Canada as there is a listing for that at Winnipeg in 1910 Annuario dell' Aeronautica Primo 368 (Sept. 1910), but there are no details there.
