President's Message

Thank you for your interest in our website for The Royal Canadian Legion, Nova Scotia/Nunavut Command. Our mission is to serve Veterans, including serving military and RCMP members and their families, to promote Remembrance, and to serve our communities and country.

There is strength in numbers. With close to 250,000 members in 1,350 branches, The Royal Canadian Legion reaches across our vast country and abroad and connects us to our past, our present and our future. Our members care deeply about supporting the men and women who serve and have served this country and strive to make a difference.

TheLegionisCanada’slargestVeteran andcommunityserviceorganization.Ourmembership includes currently serving and retired Canadian Armed Forces and Royal Canadian Mounted Police members, as well as the mothers and fathers, wives and husbands, sons and daughters, and grandchildren of Veterans. Each of these individuals is impacted by the care our Veterans receive and the issues affecting them.

The Royal Canadian Legion was founded by Veterans and for Veterans. We advocate for the care and benefits for all who served Canada, regardless of when or where they served. The Legion also provides representation and assistance to Veterans, including currently serving Canadian Armed Forces and RCMP, and their families, and access to our services is available to them at no cost, whether or not they are Legion members. The Legion helps thousands of Veterans each year and makes significant positive changes in their lives.

We also welcome into our membership those without military affiliation who support Canada’s Veterans. Legion members, whether they have served or not, help Veterans and their families, promote Remembrance, support Legion programs, and volunteer their time to provide essential services within their communities. Without Legion volunteers, the tremendous programs, and services the Legion provides to our Veterans and their families would disappear.

We are proud and honoured by the work our members do for Veterans, and we welcome all Canadians to join and stand with us to honour and help those who serve and have served.

I encourage you to explore the information on our site, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact Nova Scotia/ Nunavut Command or any Branch and we will be happy to assist.
