Who We Are

We are a veterans' community-based organization which any Canadian citizen, Commonwealth sibject or citizen of an allied country can join. We were founded by veterans, for veterans more than eight decades ago. But while we have maintained our traditional values of veterans' care and perpetuation of Remembrance, we have progressively become more involved in the community.

With almost 400,000 members in 1,590 branches we ensure Canadian veterans of all ages receive everything they so richly deserve. We are "The Guardians of Remembrance" in Canada but we also have a big role to play in community development. We are a not-for-profit organization self-funded by its members for the good of our veterans and our communities.

Our Role

To serve veterans, new and old, and their dependants, to promote Remembrance and to act in the service of Canada and its communities.
