The Capital City Garrison is the Eastern Ontario chapter of the 501st Legion, an all-volunteer international Star Wars costuming organization with more than 4,000 members representing more than 45 nations.

We are here to lend assistance to charities and provide smiles to those most in need. We offer support at charity events, fund raisers, and social functions by appearing as film-authentic Star Wars characters. The 501st is always looking for opportunities to brighten the lives of the less fortunate and to bring awareness to positive causes on both a local and global scale.

We will be around the Ottawa area as well as events from Kingston to Montreal. To find out how an Imperial presence can benefit your next event, please contact us!

The 501st is proud to put its resources to good use through fundraising, charity work, and volunteerism. While there is no cost to engage our services (public or private), we enthusiastically welcome donations made to a charitable organization in the name of the 501st Legion. If you do not have a charity of choice, please ask the participating local 501st members for their favorite cause. We encourage donations to some of the following on our behalf:

  • Max Keeping Foundation
  • Ottawa Food Bank
  • Children's Miracle Network Canada
  • Champions for Children Foundation
  • Ottawa Dragon Boat Foundation
  • Ottawa Children's Treatment Centre
  • Make-A-Wish Canada

On March 14th, 2010, the group went to the Merivale Bowling Centre for the second year in a row in support of the Max Keeping Bowl Athon. Max was delighted to have the group participate in his worthy cause for kids and their families in need.
