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.

Key Tag Program

 Losing your keys is a frustrating, time consuming and expensive experience. As a solution, Legion is sending out their Lost Key Tags for 2019/2020.

Simply attach the key tags to all your key sets and if you lose them you will receive them back in the mail when they are found and sent to us. It is a safe and simple way to increase the likelihood of keys being returned to their owners.
