BE PART OF MAKING A DIFFERENCE
They served and sacrificed for our freedoms. Becoming a member of the Legion is the ultimate way to show your gratitude and give your support. You don’t have to be a Veteran to join and make a difference.
Why Join the Legion?
Branch #104 of the Royal Canadian Legion is a place for people to gather and feel connected to their neighbours. We serve as the primary community centre, hosting weddings, town meetings, community BBQs, memorial services, and other important events and activities. We are the cornerstone of our community.
The Royal Canadian Legion, with nearly 270,000 Legion members in 1,400 branches across the country, encompasses a diverse group of individuals.
Some are serving or retired members of the Canadian Armed Forces or the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). Others have a close affiliation with the military, such as through a family member. Many are just regular Canadians hoping to make a difference.
But there is one constant among all of them: A desire to support the men and women who have served Canada.
