Wednesday, November 11th
Join us on Wednesday, November 11th as we take a moment of silence to honour and remember the men and women who have served, and continue to serve Canada.
The Royal Canadian Legion's 2020 National Poppy Campaign began on Friday, October 30th. This year, several changes will be implemented in regards to the ways in which donors can attend and support the campaign.
On November 11th, the Legion will offer a Facebook Live presentation of the National Remembrance Day ceremony, and the traditional host broadcaster - CBC - will also cover the commemoration.
For the first time, spectators are discouraged from attending in person, due to the limited space and requirement to physically distance. Similar ceremony changes may be taking place in other Canadian communities, please check with local Legion Branches for regional information.
Donations and Support
In most locations, traditional poppy boxes will accept coins and donors will receive poppies as usual. Where feasible and safe, donation tables and volunteers will be placed at business entrances and public locations. The Legion will also pilot an electronic "Pay Tribute" box that will allow the community to donate and receive a poppy with tap and pay technology in select locations.
You can also donate through the Legion's national website.
