THE ONTARIO PROVINCIAL COMMAND LADIES' AUXILIARY

 

Members of the Ladies’ Auxiliary support the aims and objectives of The Royal Canadian Legion and their dedicated service enriches the programs and activities of the Branch.

During the 1914-1918 war years. as wounded veterans returned home, women were asked to help with their recovery by visiting  hospitals, sending parcels  to  the hospitalized and  to  needy families.  It was from these dedicated bands of women that The  Royal  Canadian Legion Ladies’  Auxiliary  was  started.  Today,  the  Ladies’ Auxiliary  is  a   vital  and integral part of the work of  the Legion.   Major contributors to the  day-to-day  life  of Legion Branches, Ladies’ Auxiliaries provide financial and volunteer support to Legion programs. 


The Ladies’ Auxiliary (LA) is a non-profit organization operated separate from The Royal Canadian Legion, but together they thrive.

Any woman who is eligible for membership in the Legion may choose to  become a member of the Ladies Auxiliary only, or a member of both organizations.  The Ontario Command have 292 Auxiliaries with 13,731 members. 


Through their many fund raising activities they assist the local Legion Branches, health facilities and programs, school activities, and Bursaries.
