Royal Canadian Legion Branch 229

About Us 

On April 9, 1932, Branch 229 Elora, of the Royal Canadian Legion was granted it's charter to operate. Since then, the Legion has been supporting it's community in many significant ways. Not only does the Legion look after Veterans and their families, but also the Elora and area residents. To date, we have given over $750,000 to seniors groups, minor sports, the local hospital, cadets, scouting groups, and many more.

Please take a few minutes and check out our website, and maybe even stop by our Branch for a visit. You are always welcome. If you would like to join our fine Branch, click on Membership to find out how. We have many exciting events throughout the year that you might be interested in.

The Legion is about more than our canteen. Give us a chance, and we'll show you!

The news of the discovery of children’s remains in British Columbia has deeply saddened us all. This Chapter in Canada's history is devastating. We feel great sorrow for those who have been affected by this tragedy over the years and in the wake of this latest discovery. In Remembrance of these children we lower our flags to half-mast for 215 hours. One hour to represent and reflect upon each child's life lost. We stand in solidarity with our First Nations Comrades and Friends.
