What do you think of when you hear the word Legion? Do you think military or service officers, veterans that served our country, a community club or a place full of comradeship?
All of the above would be correct but our local Branch 92 of the Royal Canadian Legion is so much more.
You no longer need to have served in the military to belong to The Legion.
Membership has its privileges and the Legion is no exception. Once you become a member you are part of the club and will enjoy more than discounted rates on beverages and entertainment. You will have the satisfaction of knowing you are part of something bigger than just a night out with friends. You become part of something you can feel proud of, knowing you are also giving back and that when you purchase a membership you are aiding veterans across Canada.
We are a gathering place, we are a service club, with a warm atmosphere full of friendly faces that welcomes everyone with smiles.
We are a place where you can visit with your friends old and new to play pool, cards, darts, or put on your dancing shoes every weekend and enjoy the fantastic line up of live entertainment that always has something for everyone no matter your taste.
We are a place where every Thursday night new talent and exciting acts entertain during open mic, and karaoke every second Friday is the spot to let your inner star shine.
We are a place where you can eat home style cooking prepared lovingly by the Ladies Auxiliary every Friday night or come to the lounge Fridays and Saturdays where Kat’s Kitchen serves up some of the best food on the island at very reasonable prices. Be sure to come early for the very popular meat draw, always a great time with all proceeds going directly back to our community.
We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of our fabulous volunteers.

With all of these attributes and friendly vibes it is easy to see why our Legion has the most new memberships in BC this year and a roster of dedicated volunteers who give tirelessly of their time and skills. As a service club the Legion has given over $53,000 back to our community this year alone. We are proud to say we gave back $23,723.78 for the Poppy Grants, $2324.00 in General Grants and $27,534.18 in Gaming Grants. From Lady Minto and Greenwoods, to SWOVA , junior clubs and school programs that support our youth and future island leaders, the Legion gives back. A dedicated executive board of volunteers works hard to make sure all donation and support requests are given the attention and merit they deserve. One hundred percent of the meat draw and gaming proceeds goes directly back to our community and while the Poppy fund is intended to aid veterans, it also benefits our aging population when veterans live in the same facility as the majority goes to Lady Minto Extended Care and Greenwoods and other local facilities.
