A state of emergency was declared in BC on March 17, 2020. We are all being encouraged to stay home and use social distancing if we do have to go out.  The Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry has issued an order to close all bars and clubs in BC effective immediately, March 17, 2020.

Our first concern is the health and safety of our veterans, members and their communities. We have advised our branches to follow the direction of their local Public Health Authority and our government.
