The Legion serves all Veterans
The Royal Canadian Legion was
founded by Veterans and 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 currently serving Canadian Armed Forces and
RCMP, and their families, and access to our services is
available to them at no cost, whether or not they are
Legion members. The
Legion helps thousands of Veterans each year and
makes significant positive changes in their lives.
The Legion exists so that Canada never
The Legion understands the
importance of honouring past sacrifices and
acknowledging the courage of those who served and still
serve today. Through Remembrance
Day ceremonies, the Poppy
education programs and
more, the Legion helps Canadians to honour and remember.
The Legion serves our communities and our
Legion Branches are the
cornerstone of communities across Canada, and provide
one of the largest volunteer bases in the country. With
more than 1,400 Branches from coast to coast to coast,
our members provide local services and supports to build
a stronger Canada. 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, Legionnaires provide
essential services in their communities.
