Welcome to Army Navy Air Force Veterans In Canada (ANAF), a not-for-profit organization. Our Unit #262 is located at 765 Third St. (Cawthra and Lakeshore area) in Mississauga, Ontario.
The ANAF objectives are to provide assistance and support to veterans and their families, to members of the Canadian Armed Forces, and to our community. We also visit hospitals, financially support local and national charities, youth programs and community services and activities.
You do not have to be former military to join our club, although in the past our membership has been comprised of veterans of past and present wars, Regular and Reserve Forces, Military Cadets, and the Police. We also have veterans from the Allied Nations Forces and members of our community who actively show their interest and support our objectives. Please visit our Memberships page for details and application forms for joining out unit.
Sports are an important function of our club. We have two 8ft Brunswick pool tables, and 16 dart boards. We have two winter dart leagues and one summer league. Spares are always welcomed. We offer Cribbage in the winter and Horseshoes in the summer months. New players always welcome. Snooker and other pool games are favourites of the unit and a game can be had pretty much any time. There is a snooker league on Saturday Afternoons in the winter. You do not have to be a member to play in most leagues.
We offer live entertainment most Friday nights and often host a LIVE Music Jam which features various accomplished musicians and unexpected musicians from the audience will often join in.
