“The Legion helped pull me out of my
                            darkest symptoms, made me feel part of the
                            organization and family again.” – Brandon

Through the Canadian Institute for Military and Veteran Health Research, the Legion rewards this scholarship each year to a student specializing in the critical care and support of Canada’s Veterans.

Legion responds to Office of the Veterans Ombudsman report
On January 19, the Legion Dominion President released the following statement in support of the Veterans Ombudsman’s report:
“The Royal Canadian Legion supports all recommendations released in the Office of the Veterans Ombudsman’s report. Of particular note, we ask Veterans Affairs Canada to push for legislative and financial changes to ensure that family members including former spouses, survivors and dependent children, can access federally funded mental health care when their illness is related to the conditions of a Veteran’s service. This should happen whether or not the Veteran is in treatment. We believe mental health care must extend to family members in their own right who provide a crucial support system for our Veterans.”
–Thomas D. Irvine, CD, Dominion President, The Royal Canadian Legion

Digital Poppy Campaign – 2020

If you happen to live in an area that does not have an active branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, this might be an option for you to obtain a poppy.

Dear Poppy Campaign Supporter:

Last year you kindly and generously donated to the Legion’s National Poppy Campaign through the Digital Poppy initiative at www.mypoppy.ca.  

We’re asking if you could please participate as a donor again this year. All funds raised from donations through the Digital Poppy are dedicated to needed programs and services for our Veterans and their families.  

Please visit www.mypoppy.ca to personalize, dedicate and share your 2020 Digital Poppy. 

Thank you for your continued support. 


David Flannigan

David Flannigan, Chair, Legion National Foundation

The Digital Poppy as part of the National Poppy Campaign is generously supported by our corporate partner, HomeEquity Bank.
