Welcome to legion161.ca - your source for information about Branch activities and events. Our web site is always changing so use it often to check for new features and updates.

For your protection and the safety of others, Public Health has directed that everyone must wear a mask while in a public place unless physically consuming food or beverage. This includes while waiting to be served or for food and beverage to be delivered, while moving to the washroom and when taking part in recreational activities such as darts, pool and using the VLTs.

Our branch has a variety of medical equipment available to loan at no charge, from crutches to wheelchairs, walkers, bath seats and more. Contact us if you or someone you know is in need of this type of equipment. Photos of some of it can be viewed here.



The Branch is Open!

However the Covid restrictions on sports, gaming and social events will continue.

Membership renewals for 2021 are now being accepted in the branch, or online.  By Legion regulations, comrades who have not renewed are no longer in good standing and do not have member priviledges.

Our responsibility is to provide you with a safe environment, where you can meet with friends and enjoy an outing from home. This is achieved by observing the conditions ordered by the Public Health Office to reduce the risk of transmitting Covid-19:

  • don’t use the branch if you have, or have had, a fever or flu like symptoms
  • wash your hands with soap and hot water when possible and use the hand sanitizer provided upon entering the branch and any time you contact common surfaces
  • wear your mask unless consuming food or a beverage
  • maintain at least 6 feet between other people
  • remain seated while using the branch and allow us to serve you at your table
  • don’t share a table with anyone who is not in your daily social  (bubble) group
