The 48th Dominion Convention

The 48th Dominion Convention: Virtual Edition

Due to the ongoing pandemic restrictions, The Royal Canadian Legion 2021 Dominion Convention will be held virtually for the first time. But while this year’s format may be different, our goal remains the same: to make the Legion the best it can be in order to serve Canada’s Veterans.

This year, over 3,200 Delegates and proxies, representing close to 250,000 members, will meet online to discuss the future of the Legion. Delegates will vote on resolutions, determine national policies and elect the next Dominion President and Senior Elected Officers.

Together, we will help set the direction for the future of our organization.
