Your Royal Canadian Legion is committed to making a difference in the lives of Veterans and their families, providing essential services in our communities, and remembering the men and women who sacrificed for our country.

We Need Volunteers

As you all know, the Legion cannot survive without their volunteers. We always require additional people as our programs increase.

To help us find you, the volunteer, we have published an online questionnaire. The information requested is for our use only and shall not be shared to third parties.

Click here to go to the online form. It will open in a new page.

Thank you for taking the time to read, look and maybe even join in!
