The 49th Dominion Convention

The Royal Canadian Legion Dominion Convention

The Royal Canadian Legion 2024 Dominion Convention will be held in Saint John, New Brunswick, August 24 through 28. This year’s theme, Building our Future on a Foundation of Strength, is not only a reflection of our past achievements but also a rallying call for the work that lies ahead.

This year, Delegates and proxies representing close to 260,000 members, will meet 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.
