The Royal Canadian Legion is Canada’s largest Veteran and community support organization formed in 1926 following the unity of various World War I Veterans’ organizations. The Legion was founded with the clear purpose of service to the Nation through three distinct channels:
Care of Veterans and their families;
Keeping alive public memory of the sacrifices of Canadians in the cause of world peace and thus providing a deterrent to future conflicts;
Promotion of unity, of thought and of effort among all Canadians leading to the development of a greater Nation.
Since 1926, The Legion has been the leading organization delivering programs to our Veterans and our communities in support of these aims. Our mission is to serve Veterans, which includes serving military and RCMP members and their families; to promote Remembrance; and to serve our communities and our country.
