The RMR Association (Branch 14) of The Royal Canadian Legion traces its origins back to September 1919 when the men of the 14th CEF (RMR) who had returned victorious to Canada voted to form an “Old Comrades Association”. The RMR Association has proudly marched with the Regiment on Remembrance Day and Church parades, taken care of veterans and their dependents, and promoted Remembrance throughout the community ever since.
Joining the Royal Canadian Legion in 1935, the RMR Association (Branch 14) was founded by Veterans and for Veterans. The Legion is devoted to supporting the men and women who served our country and put their lives on the line for our freedom and way of life.
