Youth

Youth is a very important focus of The Royal Canadian Legion. Building a bond with our youth is a priority for members of The Royal Canadian Legion. Our youth are our future.

The Royal Canadian Legion supports our youth in a variety of ways.

Poster and Literary Competitions

Run annually across the nation, our Poster and Literary Competition ensures that the history and memories of our military personnel are kept alive, while giving young people the opportunity to win prizes. Through artwork or writing, the theme of Remembrance is brought to a youthful audience, and the story of sacrifice and pride is passed on.

See a list of winners here.

Legion Track and Field National Events

Athletic meets promote camaraderie and fitness, while giving youth an opportunity to compete on a national Level.

Bursaries

Financial assistance promotes secondary education to family members of Veterans.

Cadet Medals

Our cadets are involved in many aspects of The Royal Canadian Legion. They assist at many functions in Local Branches especially our Remembrance Campaign. We support them with donations and by recognizing their achievements with the Legion Cadet Medal of Excellence.
