LADIES AUXILIARY MEMBERSHIP DRIVE
The LEGION was founded in November 1925 in Winnipeg and chartered in 1926 by special Act of Parilament. However, veteran welfare and assistance had been carried on since 1916.
During the 1914 – 1916 WAR YEARS as wounded veterans returned home, women were asked to help with their recovery by visiting hospitals, sending parcels to hospitalized and needy families and raising funds. In general, these ladies served the veterans and their dependents.
The LADIES AUXILIARY objectives of this organization are to coordinate the work of the Auxiliaries within this Command and cooperate with the Legion in its purposes.
Membership in the Ladies’ Auxiliary is open to a woman who:

Is willing to work for the Aims and Objects of The Royal Canadian Legion and its Auxiliaries.
Our members work to improve the quality of life for all in our communities, especially those who are less fortunate, less privileged, or in failing health.
As our veterans age. The need increases, as well as costs. The Auxiliaries have been most supportive of this work with donations to assist with the purchase of necessities for those hospitalized veterans.
The Auxiliaries annually support local and provincial youth sports activities, with students being sponsored to the Legion Athletic Camp at the International Peace Gardens by partial or full payment of the required fees.
The Ladies Auxiliary stands side by side with the Royal Canadian Legion, in that we support Veterans and their families in times of need, as well as supporting the Local Community.
If you support this worthwhile cause, we need your immediate help.
