Join Canada’s largest Veterans’ organization

The Legion Veteran Welcome Program

The Legion invites still serving or retired CAF or RCMP members and their eligible family members who have not yet joined the Legion to a free first year of membership.

Support Canadian Veterans

The Royal Canadian Legion is one of the most vocal supporters of Canada’s military community. For nearly a century, we have provided essential services to Veterans when they need it most, advocated for Veterans’ needs and helped Canadians honour the sacrifices of those who serve.

But we need your support to continue our important work. To help you get to know the Legion, we’re offering a free first year of membership to all serving and retired CAF and RCMP members who have not yet joined the Legion.

The free first year of membership is also open to all parents or guardians, spouses and children 18+ of serving, retired or passed CAF and RCMP members who have not yet joined the Legion.

Join generations of Veterans, military families, and supporters. Become a member today.
