The Royal Canadian Legion/BC Yukon Command is a non-profit organization consisting of 149 Branches, 73 Ladies' Auxiliaries and nearly 55,000 members. We are one of the foremost and most respected community service organizations in Canada, serving veterans, ex-service personnel, seniors, youth and many aspects of community life.
At the Legion, we are guided by three pillars: Remember, Join & Give
Remembering allows us to reflect and honour long-term veterans and their families, and to be here to support a new generation of veterans.
Joining is all about membership and volunteering ? the Legion is where belonging matters, and where you can make a real difference with your time and talent.
Giving means saying ?Thank You? and ?I care about my community? ? with your cheque book, credit card ? even your cell phone! Your financial contributions make a world of difference.
Our Mission is to serve veterans (including those currently serving in the military and RCMP members) and their families, to promote remembrance and to serve our communities and our country.
