The Poppy Campaign

Every year, from the last Friday in October to Remembrance Day, The Legion conducts the Poppy Campaign. Canadians have donated money to support the services we provide and to clearly show their recognition of the debt owed to so many Canadians who gave their lives for our freedom

The History

Each November, Poppies blossom on the lapels and collars of over half of Canada’s entire population. The Poppy Campaign inspires Canadians to Remember.

The Poppy Importance

The Poppy has stood as a symbol of Remembrance, our visual pledge to never forget those Canadians who have fallen in war and military operations.

The Lapel Poppy

During the Poppy Campaign some 18 million poppies and 70,000 wreaths, crosses and sprays are distributed across Canada and overseas annually.
