Poppy

Each November, poppies blossom on the lapels and collars of over half of Canada’s entire population.

Since 1921, the Poppy has stood as a symbol of Remembrance, our visual pledge to never forget all those Canadians who have fallen in war and military operations.

The Poppy also stands internationally as a “symbol of collective reminiscence”, as other countries have also adopted its image to honour those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

The person who was responsible more than any other for the adoption of the Poppy as a symbol of Remembrance in Canada and the Commonwealth was Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae, a Canadian Medical Officer during the First World War.

VETS Canada opens Ottawa Drop-in and Support Centre

VETS Canada is extremely pleased to announce that we have opened our first Veterans’ Drop-in and Support Centre in downtown Ottawa at 517 Besserer Street on 17 September, 2018. The Centre will be open throughout the week and be a place where Veterans will be welcomed and receive the immediate and timely support that they may need. from VETS Canada, Veterans Affairs Canada and other government and community organizations.
 
The Centre will be operated by a full time VETS Canada social services worker who has the necessary skills to effectively support our Veterans. The Centre will also include a Veteran’s lounge, computer center, library and common area. Veterans will be able to use the laundry facilities, a phone and receive food and gas cards, bus tickets, a coffee, and sandwich, if needed. Our work over the years and research with Veterans, clearly points to the need for a Veteran’s facility where Veterans receive immediate and timely support from qualified personnel and Veterans. The Centre will also become the home for our serving and retired military personnel, former members of the RCMP and those who support the Canadian military from our Ottawa VETS Canada Chapter, helping them to continue to effectively support our Veterans in need in the Ottawa and surrounding area, and to volunteer at the Centre.

Membership

The Royal Canadian Legion is proud of its military heritage and still maintains close ties with the Armed Forces today. However, over the years, categories of membership have evolved to include other members of the community.

Our members are men and women, the young and not so young. They all have one thing in common. They care! They care about Canada's Veterans, they care about seniors, they care about Canada's youth and they care about each other.

The Legion would love to welcome YOU, so why not drop in to our Legion branch and see what it's all about.


You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!

Membership DOES have its privileges!
