Our key advocacy points

The Legion advocates for the care, benefits and wellbeing of all Veterans and their families


Nationally, the Legion is actively advocating for a list of measures that, if adopted by Canada’s government, will have a positive impact on our Veterans and their families. In addition to national advocacy efforts, the Legion works at the provincial and local levels to advocate for Veterans and their families. Canada’s Veterans served to protect the very rights and freedoms we enjoy today; we owe them our commitment to ensure they receive the benefits they need and deserve. The Royal Canadian Legion firmly believes this country has a solemn obligation owed to our military members.
