Veteran’s Welcome Program

As part of our efforts to help Veterans transition to civilian life, the Legion offers a free, one-year membership to all currently serving or retired Canadian Armed Forces and RCMP members who are not yet a Legion member.

This free membership, which includes a subscription to Legion Magazine and access to Legion Member Benefit programs, is one way we thank Veterans for their service, and provides Veterans with the opportunity to get to know the Legion.

Veteran’s Family Welcome Program

The free first year of membership is also open to all parents or guardians, spouses and children 18+ of serving, retired or passed CAF and RCMP members who have not yet joined the Legion.

Join the Legion

As a member of a Legion Branch, you have opportunities to volunteer in your community (especially during the annual Poppy Campaign), add your voice to Legion advocacy efforts, become involved in leadership roles at your Branch, and help shape the Legion in your community and across the country.

The Orleans Branch has close to 800 members, but we need new members if we are to continue offering the current level of programs and services to our Veterans and their families.
