Your local Legion
Alberta-NWT Command represents The Royal Canadian Legion in Alberta and the Northwest Territories through its many branches. It is a membership organization, dedicated to honouring the service of Canadian and Commonwealth Veterans, assisting current Veterans to access the help and benefits they deserve, promoting the Poppy Fund during Remembrance, and preserving the memory of those who fought and died for Canada.
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.
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.
