The Service Bureau is at 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.
The Service Bureau is here to help:
- Veterans of Canadian Forces
- Serving Canadian Forces personnel
- Merchant Navy Veterans
- 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.
