Notice regarding Reproduction of Legion Publications

Dominion Command will make available all Legion manuals in electronic format only. Royal Canadian Legion Commands, branches, and members wishing to print and distribute manuals may do so provided they are not sold nor is any fee or compensation required to obtain copies of these manuals. Anyone wishing to sell copies of any manual will be permitted to do so only with the prior written authority of Dominion Command. All requests are to be submitted in writing to the Dominion Secretary. Note that the distribution or sale of any of these printed manuals by a Command or branch is restricted to the jurisdiction of the Command or branch making the request.

Any individual or entity not directly affiliated with The Royal Canadian Legion must obtain written authorization before producing any part of these manuals. Such requests must also be submitted to the Dominion Secretary.

Stay up to date on national updates, activities, policies, programs, and helpful resources for your Branch. Please ensure that your primary branch email, phone and mailing address are up-to-date in our database by ensuring your Provincial Command has the latest information about your Branch. Or you can email us at membership@legion.ca.
