Our Mission

To enhance the lives of Canadian military personnel, Veterans and their families by harnessing the national capacity for research.

The primary mission of The Canadian Veterans Advocacy is to IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF OUR VETERANS. In order to achieve this objective, the Canadian Veterans Advocacy will strive to affect positive change and advocate on behalf of veterans.

Since 1926 The Royal Canadian Legion has remained committed to advocating for those who serve and for all Veterans and their families including Canadian Armed Forces and RCMP members.

As a national organization committed to our Veterans, their families, and the communities they call home, we offer programs and services for a wide variety of groups on both local and national levels. Through these offerings, we aim to improve the lives of those involved while instilling in them the importance of Remembrance.
At the Office of the Veterans Ombudsman we work to ensure that Veterans, serving members of the Canadian Armed Forces and the RCMP, and other clients of Veterans Affairs Canada, are treated respectfully, in accordance with the Veterans Bill of Rights, and receive the services and benefits that they require in a fair, timely, and efficient manner.
