The Service Bureau is the heart of the Legion

From the very beginning, after the First World War, the Legion’s purpose was to improve the lives of Veterans and the people they left behind. Today, we want to do as much as we can to maintain that tradition of service.



Serving Canadian Forces personnel

Past and present members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police

The dependants of all of these groups

There is no requirement for Veterans to join the Legion to qualify for assistance. The Legion exists to help Veterans – not the other way round.
