The Royal Canadian Legion is a self funded charitable organization mandated to provide assistance to veterans and their dependents while ensuring that the contribution made by them to their country and those of our fallen are never forgotten.

In addition to veterans care and remembrance the Legion also supports the youth and other charitable organizations within the community it serves.

It is an organization that cares about everybody in the community. The social atmospheres it creates is secondary to its community and charitable work.

Act of Remembrance, an extract from the poem "For the Fallen" by Laurence Binyon.

They shall grow not old,

    as we that are left grow old:

Age shall not weary them,

    nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun

    and in the morning

We will remember them

    Response:     We will remember them.

Act du Souvenir

Ils ne vieilliront pas comme nous,

      qui leur avons survécu.

Ils ne connaîtront jamais l'outrage,

     ni le poids des années.

Quand viendra l'heure du crépuscule et celle de l'aurore,

     nous nous souviendrons d'eux

Réponse de l'assistance:  Nou nous souviendrons d'eux.
