Canadians often associate The Royal Canadian Legion with Remembrance ceremonies and events.
initiatives, we honour and remember Canada’s fallen Veterans and help ensure
Canadians never forget. The Legion is responsible for planning and coordinating
annual Remembrance Day ceremonies in communities across the country,
including the National Ceremony in Ottawa.
For many, our most
widely known activity is the
Annual Poppy Campaign
that leads up to Remembrance Day.
Legion members and other volunteers distribute tens of millions of Poppies,
and gratefully accept donations to raise money to support Veterans and their families.
While November is
recognized as a time of Remembrance,
for the Legion and for many across the country,
Remembrance is a year-long commitment.
At any given moment, there are many opportunities
available to anyone wishing to show their appreciation for those who served.
Remembering those who have left us
