BRANCH 170 

Branch 170 received its charter in 1930! Active for over 84 years, the members have met in various places around town including the old post office, and the old marketplace, and finally in the late 40's establishing the location that continues to this day. The original building burned down in 1953, and was rebuilt. It has since had several renovations. It is notable that most of the work on the legion has been done by volunteers.

LEGION HISTORY

The Royal Canadian Legion was formed in 1925 with a membership of 50,000. The Legion’s commitment to the Remembrance of those who gave their lives for peace and freedom, is as valid today as it was then. Today the Legion is one of the largest community service organizations in Canada, with more than 450,000 members and approximately 1,600 branches in Canada, USA, and Germany.


As well as service to veterans and the community, the Legion has a strong and continuing commitment in promoting Canada’s contribution to world peace, the protection of Canadian sovereignty and the preservation of national unity. 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 to communities across Canada.


OUR MISSION:

Serving veterans and their dependents, promoting Remembrance, and acting in the service of Canada and its communities.
