Every year, from the last Friday of October to November 11, tens of millions of Canadians wear a Poppy as a visual pledge to honour Canada’s Veterans and remember those who sacrificed for the freedoms we enjoy today.
While the Poppy is distributed freely to all who wish to wear one, the Legion gratefully accepts donations to the Poppy Fund.
What is the Poppy Campaign?
The Poppy Campaign is very much a local initiative, conducted by Legion Branches in cities, towns and communities across the country. Donations collected during the Poppy Campaign are held in Trust at the branch level to directly support Veterans and their families within their community and to help ensure Canadians ‘never forget’.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
We are seeking volunteers to help the Haliburton Legion distribute poppies and collect donations at various locations around town.
Sign up boards for the Poppy Campaign are located at the Haliburton Legion in the Clubroom.

LEGION POPPY FUND
All proceeds go to the Legion Poppy Fund and are used to support Canadian veterans (Canadian Armed Forces, RCMP), their families and many approved veteran related local initiatives. The money is collected by the Royal Canadian Legion and then the money is held in trust.
