“Every year, from the last Friday in October to Remembrance Day, The Legion conducts the Poppy Campaign. Canadians have donated money to support the services we provide and to clearly show their recognition of the debt owed to so many Canadians who gave their lives for our freedom” ~ Dominion Command
Our Poppy Fund is its own registered charity (#119128437RR0001) and is governed by the Royal Canadian Legion Dominion Command. The fiscal year runs from October 1 – September 30.
Each year we ask locals and visitors in the Wasaga Beach and Stayner communities for donations through our Poppy drive.
It is important to our Branch that you are aware of where your funds are distributed.
The Poppy Trust Fund provides veterans assistance to veterans and their families within our zone, educational bursaries, local cadet support, and special expenditures as outlined in the Poppy Manual provided by Dominion Command.
