What Is A Veteran?

The Legion's definition of a Veteran

“A Veteran is any person who is serving or who has honourably served in the Canadian Armed Forces, the Commonwealth or its wartime allies, or as a Regular Member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, or as a Peace Officer in a Special Duty Area or on a Special Duty Operation, or who has served in the Merchant Navy or Ferry Command during wartime.”

Our great organization, The Royal Canadian Legion, honours all Veterans including serving Canadian Forces and Royal Canadian Mounted Police members.

There is no distinction on type of service or where and when you served.
