To support veterans and their families the Royal Canadian Legion was established in 1925 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, as an advocacy organization. The Legion expanded its membership to include female veterans, family members of Canadians who served, and eventually, the general public. 360,000 members are apart of the 1500 legion branches that are scattered across Canada today.
