Legion branches offer essential services within their communities including health and wellness clinics for seniors, Meals on Wheels programs and Christmas Hamper programs.

The Legion is one of Canada’s largest supporters of youth activities in the country supporting the cadets, scouting and guiding movements as well as youth sports teams.

The Legion’s National Youth Track and Field competition is the only one of its kind in Canada which annually assists in the development of over 800 young athletes aged 12 to 17 years old to become Canada’s future Olympians. The program was started by returning Veterans from WWII who recognized a need.

In conjunction with other community groups, Legionnaires support the daily life of our communities by delivering outreach and assistance programs as well as key services that help thousands of Canadians every day.

In many communities, Legion branches are the primary community centres. In times of emergency, Legion branches and Legionnaires rise up to the challenge to support those who are less fortunate or those who have been affected by the emergency.
