Dominion Convention

The Legion is a democratic, non-partisan, member based organization. We endeavour to make a difference in the lives of Veterans, including military and RCMP members and their families; to support our communities and our country, and to always remember the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

The Royal Canadian Legion’s major governing forum is its bi-annual Dominion Convention. All members of the organization are represented by delegates who vote on resolutions and determine national policies as well as the organization’s overall direction. The “Committee Reports and Resolutions” document, which contains the proposed national resolutions, is provided to every Branch for review prior to the Convention.

The election of the Dominion President and members of the Senior Elected Officers, positions held for two years, is conducted at Dominion Convention.

After Convention, a “Convention Report and Proceedings” document, identifying the resolutions that have been passed, is made available to every Branch. The document is also shared with government departments for their review and feedback. A summary “Comments on Resolutions” document is later produced.
