Incorporated as the Border Cities Italian Club, on April 1, 1927, the club was later renamed the Giovanni Caboto Club in honour of the sailor and explorer John Cabot (or Giovanni Caboto). He became an important figure to Italian immigrant communities in Canada, although he sailed for the English crown. His landing on the coastline of modern-day Newfoundland in 1497 was used to validate and legitimize the Italian immigrant experience in Canada, serving as a source of pride.
