The Royal Canadian Legion Dominion Command coordinates all applications originating in Canada to the Royal Commonwealth Ex-Services League (RCEL) in the UK on the behalf of allied Veterans.
There are grants that help to provide for food, clothing, medical or dental treatment, mobility devices, and minor home repair. The funds are generally reserved for Veterans and their spouses who suffer misfortune, encounter an emergency or are seriously disadvantaged.
There is also the Regular Financial Assistance Award or Regular Charitable Payment. If you are having difficulty meeting day-to-day living costs on an ongoing basis, you could be considered for this award. To obtain an application or additional information, please contact Dominion Command.
