The Royal Canadian Legion was founded by Veterans for Veterans. We advocate for the care and benefits for all who served Canada, regardless of when or where they served. The Legion also provides representation and assistance to Veterans including those currently serving in the Canadian Armed Forces and RCMP, as well as their families. Access to our services is available to them at no cost, whether or not they are Legion members.
The Legion exists so that Canada never forgets!
We understand the importance of honouring past sacrifices and acknowledging the courage of those who served and still serve today. Through Remembrance Day ceremonies, the Poppy campaign, commemorative activities, and more, the Legion helps Canadians to honour and remember.
The Legion serves as a cornerstone within our community. Whether helping local Veterans, supporting seniors, providing youth sports programs, raising funds, volunteering to help those in need, or simply offering a place to gather for fun and celebration, Legions provide essential services in their communities.
The Poppy Campaign is very much a local initiative, conducted by Legion Branches in cities, towns and communities across the country. Donations collected during the Poppy Campaign are held in Trust at the branch level to directly support Veterans and their families within their community and to help ensure Canadians ‘never forget'.
