Founded in 1925 to meet the needs of all who served in the armed forces and their dependents, the Legion has grown over the years to become Canada’s largest service organization providing support to veterans and communities across the country. One of the primary objectives of the Legion is to encourage, promote, support and participate in all forms of municipal, community and national service.
