Westboro Legion Branch 480 is
committed to serving our veterans (military and RCMP),
supporting our troops, promoting Remembrance, and
contributing to our community.
What you should know about the Royal
Canadian Legion and its branches
We’re the largest of the many
Canadian veterans’ organizations with more than
320,000 members in 1,461 branches across the
age for branch membership is based on the age of
majority of each branch’s province.
We are a not-for-profit
organization funded by membership dues. We receive
no financial assistance from any other agency. While
our annual Poppy Campaign is designed to foster
Remembrance, donations made by Canadians help us
provide various services to veterans.
We advocate for the payment of
proper federal pensions and benefits for veterans
and their dependents and provide financial
assistance for veterans’ needs, including long-term
care and housing.
We support various programs and
initiatives for veterans and their families,
seniors, and youth. We are responsible for ensuring
that our fellow citizens can pay tribute each year –
in Ottawa and in branches across the country – to
118,000 men and women who, since
have given their lives in missions around the world.
