Welcome to the Merrickville Legion Website
The Legion is a non profit organization whose primary mission is to provide support and assistance to Veterans and their families as well as serving or former serving members of the military, all members of the police services and the community. Founded in 1925, the Legion is Canada’s largest veteran support and community service organization. The organization reaches across Canada as well as branches in the U.S., and Europe. With close to 250,000 members, many of whom volunteer an extraordinary amount of time to their branches, our strength is in our numbers.<More Info>
