A special tribute at this year’s National Remembrance Day Ceremony
During the National Remembrance Day Ceremony, a very special flag was displayed at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, seated at the base of the National War Memorial in Ottawa: a 150-year-old flag carried ashore during the Dieppe Raid by a Canadian soldier. The flag represents the story of a journey that crossed generations, through friend and foe and across great distances, over several countries and two continents, to return home.

Celebrating our Legion Volunteers
Every donation to the Poppy Fund goes directly to helping Canadian Veterans and their families. We were beyond moved to hear from one such family, reaching out to thank our volunteers from over 60 years ago!
Second World War Veteran Emil Karp, and his wife Norma Saari (Karp), remember how Legion volunteers came to their family’s aid over 60 years ago. Their daughter Judy recently wrote to the Legion, recalling how the Legion and “Poppy Fund people” helped their family through a pivotal time:
“The ‘Poppy Fund people’ were the most supportive of anyone who helped her out. It was the Legion who came to drive her to appointments or to visit Dad in hospital [with cancer]. Many times, they would arrive with a bag or two of groceries in their arms. Their support was invaluable and much cherished!”
