Description & Services
About the Legion 
Established in 1926, The Legion is the largest Veterans service organization in Canada with more than 320,000 members. Our mission is to serve veterans, which includes serving military and RCMP members and their families, to promote remembrance and to serve our communities and our country. 
We Can Help 
We care for all Veterans of all ages and their families 
The Legion Service Bureau Network serves Veterans, members of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), RCMP, and their families by representing their interests with Veterans Affairs Canada and the Veterans Review and Appeal Board for disability benefits under the Pension Act or the New Veterans Charter. The Legion’s professional Command Service Officers are mandated by legislation to provide representation, advocacy and financial assistance free of charge, Legion member or not. 
Check out our Facebook page for the latest Legion news and future events! 
We offer hall rentals for almost all type events. Great prices and bar services available for most occasions. We don't charge for many events. 
We are anxious to have you entertain us and your friends on Friday night jam session. Have a burger and a beer on Fridays during summer.  
We're busy renovating and now have downstairs washrooms for your convenience.  
Come check out the New Legion!
