The Poppy is the international symbol of remembrance representing a visual pledge to pay homage to the fallen, who gave the ultimate sacrifice for the preservation of peace and freedom.
What We Do
Honour and Remember
The Remembrance Day Ceremony has played a major role in Remembrance since 1931. Every year, at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, we gather in memorial parks, community halls, workplaces, schools and homes to stand in honour of all who have fallen. Together, we observe a moment of silence to mark the sacrifice of the many who have fallen in the service of their country, and to acknowledge the courage of those who still serve.
The 2018/2019 Legion National Youth Track & Field Championships will be held in Cape Breton, NS.
For ten days in August each year, 1000 youth athletes from across Canada gather to train with professional coaches and compete in their first national championship!
