The Royal Canadian Legion is committed to ensuring youth understand and continue the tradition of Remembrance.
Promoting Remembrance is part of The Royal Canadian Legion’s mission and has been one of our principal objectives since our inception. The Legion inspires Canadians to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, and to honour those who served and continue to serve today. Remembrance is a year-long commitment and we endeavour to promote it through a number of programs, services and resources.
Grade 5 students at Queneesh Elementary visited Courtenay Legion to learn all about our fallen service personnel during long ago and recent wars.

The Royal Canadian Legion, in partnership with schools across the country and with The Legion National Foundation, promote remembrance and support youth education through the annual poster and literary contests.
