Long Description:
The Royal Canadian Legion in Sparwood BC is named for two of the small communities which were "amalgamated" together into the District of Sparwood. The Legion is located in Centennial Square in the town centre.

According to information on the local cenotaph (WMQCAM), The Michel-Natal Branch was formed in 1924 (visit link)

There was concern in 2014 that this Legion might close due to declining enrollment (the branch was served notice from the BC/Yukon Command that if its numbers doesn’t increase, it could be closed).

"In addition to members marching in local parades and hosting the Remembrance Day ceremonies, the Legion is it a major sponsor of the Elk Valley Air Cadets, and also provides financial assistance to other service clubs, individuals, families in need and other groups."
