Thank you for all that you do
Every November, Legion Branches and members across Canada come together to support a common and crucial cause: the Poppy Campaign. We want to express our sincere gratitude to all involved for their work and commitment over this period of Remembrance. Whether you’ve helped organize a local Remembrance Day ceremony, distributed Poppies, or gathered donations in your neighbourhoods, your dedication has made a difference in the lives of Canada’s Veterans. Thank you.
