Everyone has their own reason for joining the Legion. Whether you are a Veteran yourself, you are supporting military family and friends, or you just want to do the right thing, there are countless reasons to join. Anyone can be a member. Join us in working together to serve Canada’s Veterans at www.legion.ca.

A Legion membership means you are supporting thousands of Veterans across Canada and honouring their memory. You are supporting Veterans to:

  • get the benefits they deserve through Veterans Affairs Canada,
  • adjust to civilian life
  • get financial assistance when in need,
  • find help for mental health
  • finding suitable accommodation
  • And more!

Our mission is to serve Veterans, including serving military and RCMP members and their families, to promote Remembrance, and to serve our communities and our country.

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 forgets

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 campaign, commemorative activities, youth education programs and more, the Legion helps Canadians to honour and remember.
