We invite you to join the Kamloops Legion

Legions across the country including us here in Kamloops are always welcoming new members to keep up with our many services.

We’re always seeking ways to become more relevant to Veterans young and old we offer kinship and brotherhood, and the peer support wisdom of older Veterans who’ve been where you’re at or may be, assistance dealing with the DVA documentation and forms, and most of all…our friendship and appreciation.
