Participation in Highland Games and other Scottish activities in the region is encouraged and the clan or family aspect of the activities is emphasized. The society is registered under the Societies Act of Nova Scotia.

The Society was formed in 1983 to promote the Clan in Atlantic Canada and to encourage Baird's in the region to take pride in their heritage.

The Clan Baird Society of Atlantic Canada is no longer active, but was a very important group for many years.  Page Keith Baird was the last convenor of the organization and he lives in Nova Scotia.  Their webpage is still available and can be found at
