Legion BC/Yukon Command

Legion BC/Yukon Command

The Royal Canadian Legion/BC Yukon Command is a non-profit organization consisting of 147 Branches, 67 Ladies’ Auxiliaries, and nearly 44,000 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

The mission of The Royal Canadian Legion is to serve Veterans and their dependents, to promote Remembrance, and to act in the service of Canada and its communities.

Remembrance is the sacred sentiment that bonds all citizens, bringing everyone together to share moments of reflection, sorrow, fellowship, and gratitude.

The Royal Canadian Legion within BC/Yukon Command embraces a leadership role for Remembrance, honoring this sacred responsibility and serving all citizens.

At the Legion, we hold the sacred trust of ensuring the tradition of remembrance is observed by Canadians every year at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month.

This tradition dates back to the First World War when the guns fell silent, marking the end of military conflict and the Remembrance of those who would never return home. The National Poppy and Remembrance Campaign raise funds for veterans and their families, the new military, and others who are disadvantaged.
