NVA Services

The Newmarket Veterans’ Association offers various services, considerations and assistance to Members, Veterans, sports clubs, charities and other not for profit organizations.


In the event our veteran requires assistance, you may contact our Welfare Chair person who will assist where needed or requested by you or our veteran’s family. The Welfare Chair visits the sick and assists the needy and keeps posted the members who are in the hospital or at home. Please contact our Welfare Chair by accessing the Contact Information on this page. All enquiries will be handled with the strictest confidence and privacy.


Many of the NVA members are also volunteers with other organizations within the town of Newmarket and York Region and beyond. We have assisted with the Legion Poppy drive and the Salvation Army Kettle drive. We do not presently have a volunteers committee; but, hope to rectify this in the future. Stay tuned for any announcements.


At present the NVA has two memorials. One is located at the Newmarket Cemetery on Veterans Way. This memorial to the veterans who served in the Boer War, WWI and WWII was erected and dedicated in June 20th, 1948 during our Decoration Day service . A search of the Newmarket Library Archives for the Newmarket Era and Express newspaper of the day will give you an idea of the importance that Newmarket has given this memorial. The second memorial is located on our property at the intersection of Church St and Millard Ave. This memorial was erected and dedicated in 1991 to the veterans who served in the Boer War, WWI, WWII, Korea & peacekeeping missions.

Funerals and Burials

One of the policies of the NVA is to assist the Veteran and his or her family. Upon the death of our Veteran and at the request of the family, consideration will be given for a memorial service, gravesite services and interment in the Veteran’s Plot at the Newmarket Cemetery. Again, please contact our Welfare Chair
