Tucked into the heart of downtown Abbotsford is the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #15. Making its home at 2513 West Railway Street, the Legion is working hard to be more than just a Remembrance Day destination.


Current President Geoff Hosking is making it his mission to create a welcoming environment for members and guests alike. The branches executive works hard to host events for people of all ages, trying to persuade people that the Legion isn’t just about veterans but truly a fun location for people of all ages.

Always there to help a veteran as much as we can, the Abbotsford Legion is also supportive of many other charities in our community such as the Abbotsford Food Bank, the hospice, the Salvation Army and many more. We are especially proud of the bursuries given to students in our communities who are furthering their education.

Also active within the Legion is the Ladies Auxiliary. Proudly supporting the branch through a variety of events, the ladies host their monthly fish and chip dinner night at 5pm on the first Friday evening of each month. A shuttle service is provided for this event so anyone without transportation is able to come out and enjoy this monthly event. If you would like to take advantage of this “by donation” service, please call the branch to book your ride at 604-853-1711
