About the Foundation

This year marks the Legion Foundations 22th anniversary!

The Foundation was formed in 1997 to be charitable arm of the Legion. As a registered charitable organization the Legion Foundation continues to support Veterans and strengthen communities.  We will be giving more than $500,000 in support this year due to the generosity all those who donate.

Some of the ways Legion Foundations helps:


VICD DogsAlthough the war is over, for many the battle has just begun. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD, has become an increasingly important issue as the number of Veterans diagnosed has doubled since 2002 to 5.8%. In 2013 the Canadian Forces Mental Health Survey found that 11.1% of Regular Forces personnel met criteria for PTSD at some point in the life.
