is a non-profit organization operated separate from The
Royal Canadian Legion… but together they thrive.
The Ladies’ Auxiliary originated during the First World
War when women were asked to help wounded Veterans
returning home, and to provide supports for their
families. When The Royal Canadian Legion was established
in 1926, these women were a welcomed addition at Legion
Branches as they continued the tradition of volunteering
to support needy ex-service personnel, and to enrich the
programs and activities of the Branch.
Members of the Ladies’ Auxiliary support the aims and
objects of The Royal Canadian Legion and today, they are
a vital and integral part of the work of the Legion.
Major contributors to the day-to-day life of Legion
Branches, Ladies’ Auxiliaries provide financial and
volunteer support to Legion programs.
Royal Canadian Legion Ladies' Auxiliary is
comprised of mothers, wives, daughters, stepdaughters,
nieces, sisters, granddaughters, great granddaughters and widows of Legion members. In some
Commands, membership is also open to women in the
Catering may be arranged with our Legion
The Ladies’ Auxiliaries are coordinated at the Branch
level. Any woman who is eligible for membership in the
Legion may choose to become a member of the Ladies
Auxiliary only, or a member of both organizations. For
more information on Ladies’ Auxiliaries in your area,
please contact your local Legion Branch.
