We support our youth to play a crucial role in the growth of our community and to continue the tradition of Remembrance.
Helping Our Youth to Remember
Legions throughout Canada sponsor youth programs that include sports, cadet corps, scouts, leadership training and remembrance activities. It is our aim to help youth learn an appreciation for teamwork, leadership, duty and most importantly, Remembrance.
Legions believe educating our youth on the high cost of their freedom is one of our most important roles today. We must impress upon young people who have never known war, that freedom was won at the cost of many lives; young lives like their own. Our annual poster, literary and essay contests with a Remembrance theme, help focus the attention of the participants on those who gave all for the freedom we enjoy.
Our Legion Branch is a strong supporter of our local 613 Army Cadets and in turn the cadets units assist us with Branch activities such as our annual Poppy Campaign, Remembrance services and our Annual Veterans Dinner.
The Bursary Program is designed to assist those students who enter a post secondary school of education (including courses and training programs of a technical and vocational nature) and pursue the same course throughout their academic years.
