Your membership funds essential Veteran support
In addition to the Legion’s involvement in communities across Canada, your membership helps support the hard work that goes on behind the scenes, like funding crucial research and advocating to our government on behalf of Canada’s Veterans.
With the Dominion Convention less than a month away, we have high hopes for the difference we can make for Veterans today and for years to come.
