Royal Canadian Legion - #7 Britannia Branch (RCL #7)

About Our Branch

The RCL #7 Britannia Branch first came into being as The Great War Veterans Association “Victoria Branch”. It was formally opened on Wednesday, November 21, 1917 by Governor-General Sir Victor Christian William Cavendish, 9th Duke of Devonshire.

The first President was Comrade Joseph Food.

In 1926, we became the British Empire Service League Britannia, Victoria British Columbia No. 7 Branch on December 6, 1926. For the past 91 years, we operated as Royal Canadian Legion, Britannia #7 Branch of the BC/Yukon Command.

After World War 2, the Britannia branch membership was up to 4800. After nearly 100 years of service to our Veterans, Seniors, Youth and Community, the Branch has only 225 members today.

RCL #7 Britannia Branch has been an integral part of the Community, serving Victoria & area for over 99 years.

RCL #7 Britannia Branch honors and supports Canadian Veterans and ex-service personnel, their families and the Victoria community. As a volunteer community organization we are proud of our history of assisting Veterans and sponsoring programs in our community.
