That’s what the Legion was built to do. The Legion’s Service Bureau has been a pillar of the organization since
it was founded in 1926. Our services are offered free-of-charge to all Veterans and their families regardless of
whether or not they are members of the Legion.

Wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, commodes, bathbenches, and more are available at this local Branch.
No charge for members.
The Branch Service Officer can assist you with:
Each week we have a team of dedicated members visit 80 - 90 people in Glacier View Lodge,
Casa Loma, Comox Valley Seniors Village to spread cheer of a chat with a treat to brighten their day.
Our facility consists of two floors. The lower floor is where you will find the Lounge.
Here is where you will find dartboards, two huge pool tables, a dance floor, comfy chairs, televisions,
areas to play Euchre, Crib, or your favourite game or activity perhaps - please tell us! There is also a covered
patio to socialize and on those days the BBQ is out, the added ambience of those lazy hazy days of summer!
The upper floor is the large hall we have dedicated as the George Swift Memorial Hall.
It has a beautiful dance floor, a stage, lower and upper level, and a HUGE kitchen!
