Help Veterans all year round

Everyone has something to give. You don’t need to be a member, or a Veteran. You just have to be prepared to roll up your sleeves. You can volunteer during the Poppy campaign, at a local branch or at HQ in Calgary. There are multiple ways to get involved, such as visiting a Veteran or writing notes to those currently serving or local Veterans.

GOAL

Your membership does a whole lot of good

The Legion is Canada’s foremost Veteran support and community service organization. Join now and help us improve the lives of those who served, support our communities, and remember the Fallen.

Anyone can join.

Silent, invisible battles

There are an estimated 80,000 Veterans in our Command. You seldom hear about them. Some have moved on with their lives. But too many suffer alone.

The Legion’s Service Bureau assists Veterans by preparing and filing claims with VAC, but they also look at the well being of the Veteran and their family by helping with medical and financial supports. There’s no problem too big or too small. We’re here to help. Without question free of charge.

Veterans shouldn’t be silent or invisible.
