The Legion serves all Veterans
Royal Canadian Legion was founded by Veterans and for Veterans. We advocate for the care and benefits for all who served Canada, regardless
of when or where they served. The Legion also provides representation and assistance to Veterans, including currently serving Canadian
Armed Forces and RCMP, and their families, and access to our services is available to them at no cost, whether or not they are Legion
members. The Legion helps thousands of Veterans each year
and makes significant positive changes in their lives.
The Legion exists
so that Canada never forgets
The Legion understands the importance of honouring past sacrifices and acknowledging the courage of those
who served and still serve today. Through Remembrance Day ceremonies
, the Poppy campaign
, commemorative activities
, youth education
and more, the Legion helps Canadians to honour and remember.
The Legion serves our communities and our country
are the cornerstone of communities across Canada, and provide one of the largest volunteer bases in the country. With 1,350 Branches
from coast to coast to coast, our members provide local services and supports to build a stronger Canada. Whether helping local Veterans,
supporting seniors, providing youth sports programs, raising funds, volunteering to help those in need, or simply offering a place
to gather for fun and celebration, Legionnaires provide essential services in their communities.
The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 32 in Bay Roberts, Newfoundland and Labrador first received their charter and opened as
a club on May 9, 1955 and since that time have been an integral part of the town of Bay Roberts
as well as the local area. Over the
year's the club has grown from its humble beginnings as a one room building on the waterfront to a multipurpose facility capable of
hosting large gatherings. The well appointed kitchen facilities can provide meals for up to 140 people and has been utilized over
the year's for Community Breakfasts, Banquets, Weddings and Parties.
With co-operation from the Town of Bay Roberts the full service
Veteran's Quay Marina was opened on September 25, 1999. It offers electrical and water hookups as well as a wooden slipway for launching
any size trailer mounted boat. The marina currently has 400 feet of landscaped waterfront property from the slipway to the Klondyke
Causeway plus a 300 foot apron behind the Legion with two finger piers and a number of floating docks. The marina is capable of berthing
any size vessel from rowboats to yachts up to 60 feet in length. For more information, please see the Marina page.
Branch 32 has never
lost the reason for its existance and that is to improve the lives of Veterans, ex-service members and their famlies. It has been
our principal objective since day one and we will continue to work for it every day forward.

and Labrador Command. We have been a full charter branch since May 1955 but our history extends past that as we were part of the GWVA
(Great War Veterans Association) prior to that.
We have a proud and rich history of service to all veterans, their families and the
community in general, that continues to grow and is strengthened through the efforts of the members of the branch. Branch 32 is a
vibrant branch, rich in tradition while embracing the future as we move forward. Our branch website is full of information about the
