Our History



The Guelph Legion has served Veterans, their families and our community since 1932. We are a non-profit organization and do not receive funding from any source except our own fundraising efforts.

Legions sponsor sports, youth programs, seniors' programs, as well as supporting other charitable organizations by supplying meeting rooms and halls for events.

In partnership with the Ladies Auxiliaries of Ontario Command, the Legion operates a Charitable Foundation which brings the collective strength of our Branches together to fund medical equipment and educational bursaries throughout Ontario Command. Funds to support this Foundation are raised by Legion Branches through Poppy Campaigns and various other fundraising events

Our Mission



Our mission is to serve Veterans, including serving military and RCMP members and their families, to promote Remembrance, and to serve our communities and our country.

The Legion serves all Veterans

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. 

The Legion exists so that Canada never forgets

The Legion understands the importance of honouring past sacrifices and acknowledging the courage of those who served and still serve today. Through Remembrance Day ceremonies, the Poppy campaign, commemorative activities, youth education programs and more, the Legion helps Canadians to honour and remember.
