Penticton Branch No. 40 of the Royal Canadian Legion was originally constituted as the Great War Veterans Association in 1919. The Ladies Auxiliary to Branch 40 Penticton Royal Canadian Legion was chartered in 1928 and continues to support the Legion though fund raising events throughout the year.

We have no ides how common this is but the Penticton Legion had its entire executive ousted and replaced in 2012. It seems that the executive had failed to play by the rules, failing to submit financial reports, contravening of liquor and gaming licences and hust generally treating the Legion as their ow personal playground. The situation was commented on previously in a Letter to the Editor. Following is the beginning of one of the news articles published by the Penticton Western News published on the goings-on there.
