The Legion serves all Veterans

The 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 programs and more, the Legion helps Canadians to honour and remember.

The Legion serves our communities and our country

Legion Branches 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.
Our Branch

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.
