Legion offers free membership to RCMP

Free one-year membership to serving and retired officers for RCMP’s 100th anniversary.

The B.C. and Yukon branches of the Royal Canadian Legion are offering a complimentary one-year membership to serving and retired RCMP to honour the RCMP’s 100th anniversary

“On behalf of the British Columbia and Yukon Command of the Royal Canadian Legion, I would like to express our sincere thanks to the RCMP for serving our province for 100 years,” said Val MacGregor, president of the B.C. and Yukon Command of the Legion.

For the last 100 years, members of the RCMP have risked their lives to keep our communities safe; it’s because of these sacrifices that the Legion continues to exist today, said the the Royal Canadian Legion.

The Legion said they are committed to supporting the RCMP locally through Legion branches and provincially through programs supporting physical and mental wellness.

Legion service officers assist serving and retired RCMP members with obtaining benefits from Veterans Affairs Canada.

Poppy funds from the Legion’s annual campaign are also available in the case of an emergency.

These services are available to serving and retired RCMP officers, regardless of Legion membership.

“This year, as a show of our appreciation, we are offering a one-year free membership to serving and retired RCMP who are joining the Legion for the first-time. Membership includes a warm community welcome, access to member benefits, and a one-year subscription to Legion Magazine,” said MacGregor.

RCMP members joining the Royal Canadian Legion for the first time are eligible to register for membership by going to the Legion’s website.
