RMR Association (Br. 14)

The RMR Association (Branch 14) of The Royal Canadian Legion traces it’s origins back to September 1919 when the men of the 14th CEF (RMR) who had returned victorious to Canada voted to form an “Old Comrades Association”.  The RMR Association has proudly marched with the Regiment on Remembrance Day and Church parades ever since.

Over the years this Association has morphed several times, responding to the needs of its members and the Regiment.  At one time there was even a Toronto Club of the RMR Association, as shown below. The RMR Association became part of the Legion in 1935.

Today the RMR Association, a.k.a. “the Branch”, numbers well over 100 members and meets monthly in the RMR’s armoury from September – May, with a break over the summer.  The Branch’s main focus is supporting veterans & the RMR Family, and promoting Remembrance through the conduct of the annual Poppy Campaign.  In 2013, the Branch won a trophy for the best recruiting achievements in Quebec, and one of its members was recognized as the “Legionnaire of the Year” for Quebec.

The RMR Association also announced the launch of their Bursary Program at the end of 2013 which is open to all members of the RMR Association, as well as there is an ADDITIONAL program for students available through the Legion: Quebec Provincial Command of The Royal Canadian Legion administers an independent Bursary Program for eligible applicants.
