Legion Logo

We are a group of volunteers who exist to advocate for those who presently serve, or who have served, and their families, who live within the area of our jurisdiction; to keep alive the memory of the fallen; and to further the goals of the Royal Canadian Legion.

Please consider joining our Legion branch to make sure this work is able to continue (see the online Legion Membership page).

Branch members can renew their membership online here.


We're based in Duncan, towards the south of Vancouver Island off the west coast of British Columbia, Canada.

Our area of jurisdiction is those portions of the Cowichan Valley approximately bordered by Cobble Hill to the south, Westholme to the north, Maple Bay to the east, and Paldi/CP Rail summit to the west.

The sister branches nearest us are:
