Mandate

The poppy has been widely recognized as a symbol of remembrance, since it was first adopted in 1921.  By wearing the poppy, we demonstrate our thanks to those who gave their lives for the freedom we enjoy.

The basic purpose of the poppy funds is to provide immediate assistance to ex-servicemen, women and their families in need. This may include food, shelter or medical attention for them or their families.

Funds raised during the Poppy Campaign are also used for the following:

  • Educational Bursaries
  • Comforts for veterans in hospital
  • Medical appliances or facilities such as ramps into homes
  • Medical research
  • Medical training
  • Donations for disaster relief for disasters declared by Federal and Provincial Governments
  • Prizes for the annual Remembrance Day Poster and Literary (Poem & Essay) Contests
  • Legion Service Bureau Office

Remembrance

Each year, for two weeks before Remembrance Day, Legions throughout Canada carry out our Poppy Campaign.  The campaign raises awareness of the Poppy as a symbol of Remembrance.  Remembrance Day is reverently observed at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of each year by us and our successors.
