We are The Guardians of Remembrance

About RCL 480

Our branch, located in the heart of a vibrant west-end Ottawa neighbourhood, offers Legion members and members of our community a variety of activities such as regular weekly dances, sports and games' leagues, fundraisers for worthy causes, and parties to celebrate annual observances such as St. Patrick’s Day, Canada Day, and New Year’s Eve.

We hold Remembrance ceremonies at the Westboro Cenotaph and all are invited to join us as we take time to remember the men and women who gave their lives for us in missions around the world.

As a not-for-profit group, we could not do what we do without our dedicated volunteers, from those elected to run the branch, to those  who devote their time when needed.

Veterans who need help accessing the services they deserve, depend on the assistance provided by our service officers. Individuals and groups who need to rent space for private parties count on us for reasonable rates. We’ve been the venue of choice for countless weddings, stags, reunions, meetings, flea markets – even a popular FerretFest.

Those looking for a place to get together with colleagues after work or make it an evening out, look to our upstairs lounge with its well-stocked bar, friendly service, and free WiFi and televisions tuned to your favourite sporting events.

You also help us! A portion of your Legion membership dues go to our branch, and we put that money towards some of our costs for holding events and maintaining our building. Your support of our Poppy Campaign helps us provide services to veterans (military and RCMP members) and their families. They also enable us to provide essential community services for seniors and support Legion programs for our youth.
