With nearly 300,000 members in over 1,400 branches in communities across Canada, The Royal Canadian Legion reaches across our vast country and abroad, and connects us to our past, our present and our future. Our members care deeply about supporting the men and women who serve and have served this country, and strive to make a difference.
The Legion is Canada’s largest Veteran and community service organization, with nearly one third of our membership having served or currently serving. The majority of our membership includes the mothers and fathers, wives and husbands, sons and daughters, and grandchildren of Veterans. Each of these individuals is impacted by the care our Veterans receive and the issues affecting them.
We also welcome into our membership those without military affiliation who support Canada’s Veterans. Legion members, whether they have served or not, help Veterans and their families, promote Remembrance, support Legion programs, and volunteer their time to provide essential services within their communities. Without Legion volunteers, the tremendous programs and services the Legion provides to our Veterans and their families and to our communities would disappear.
We are proud and honoured by the work our members do for Veterans, and we welcome all Canadians to join and stand with us to honour and help those who serve and have served.
