Taken from the  RCL Dominion Command Website


By the end of World War 1, there were a total of 15 Veterans groups and a number of regimental associations representing former service members in Canada. Despite their common goal – to help returned servicemen in need – their efforts were fragmented and largely unsuccessful. In 1925, an appeal for unity led to the formation of the Dominion Veterans Alliance. The Legion was founded in November of that year in Winnipeg, Manitoba as The Canadian Legion of the British Empire Services League (BESL). It was incorporated by special Act of Parliament, Charter issued in July 1926.

Initially, the principal objectives of The Legion were to provide a strong voice for World War I Veterans and advise the government on Veterans’ issues. However, World War II brought an influx of new demands and The Legion increased efforts to help Veterans and returned service members, as well as those serving abroad.


To this day, even with numerous changes over the years, including the adoption of our current name, the Royal Canadian Legion has never faltered in our efforts to improve the lot of veterans, ex-service members and their families. It has been our principal objective since day one, and we will continue to work for it every day forward.


Since 1926 the Legion has remained committed to advocating for those who serve and for all Veterans and their families including Canadian Armed Forces and RCMP members.


Members

There is strength and power in numbers

Being a member of The Royal Canadian Legion offers a chance to be a part of your community on a local and national level, and, most importantly, it gives you the opportunity to support our Veterans, serving military, and to help foster the tradition of Remembrance.


Youth

Caring for our future

Although a key component of all of the work we do is to honour and remember not only those who have fallen, but also those who are currently serving in Canada’s military, we recognize that our youth also play a crucial role in the growth of our communities and in continuing the tradition of Remembrance.
