The Royal Hamilton Light Infantry Veterans' Association

RHLI Association Map

Do you know about the RHLI Veterans' Association? It is a place where Veterans, active military and ex-military members can meet and socialize, participate in a number of activities on a regular basis and have a lot of fun at a very reasonable price.

The Association is also a non-profit organization, which provides services and financial assistance to needy veterans and their families.

Our veteran population is declining and in order to keep the Association alive in the new millenium, it is vital that the youth of our Regimental family get involved while they are still young.

We are asking that all Regimental members young, old, Officers, NCO's and soldiers consider taking out a membership with the Association.

For just $18.00 a year, you can help ensure that the history of the RHLI does not disappear with the decline in the veteran population which made that history. Their contribution in the wars past gave us the freedom we all enjoy today and it is only fitting that we keep their memories alive.

Relatives of veterans and active servicemen can join the association as active members under sons & daughters, grandsons & granddaughters, nieces & nephews. Friends others with no military affiliation can apply as social members for $20.00 per year. For more information email

Currently there are two halls available to rent at reasonable prices. They are great for banquets, birthdays, anniversaries, stag & does, weddings, business dinners. Catering and table service available. Various menus including sandwiches, sit down dinners, hot and cold buffet style. For more information email More Information on Rental and Catering Services can be downloaded here.
