The first recorded meeting of the NWMP (North-West Mounted Police) ex-members took place in  Calgary on April 16th, 1886, at the town hall with twenty-four ex-members attending.  The first recorded dinner of ex-members took place at the Royal Hotel, Calgary, on November 4th, 1886. After some setbacks, the NWMP Veterans’ Association, as it was known then, began to grow and spread to other cities. In 1954 the association name was changed to the RCMP Veterans’ Association.  Calgary was the association headquarters for many years until 1965 when it was moved to Ottawa, the headquarters of the Force.
