As the years take their toll on Canada’s veteran population, the Legion needs the infusion of new blood in order to maintain the many services provided by the Royal Canadian Legion to communities like ours across Canada. Membership was originally restricted to those who had served in Canada’s Armed Forces and Merchant Navy.

The Royal Canadian Legion is proud of its military heritage and still maintains close ties with the Armed Forces today; however, over the years, categories of membership have evolved to include members of our close knit community.

Please, feel free to come visit with us in our air-conditioned lounge.


We offer friendly and courteous staff to serve you, a meeting hall with a projection system available, big screen TV and free WiFi in the lounge.
