Quebec Provincial Command
Poppy Trust Fund


Your contributions directly support Canada’s Veterans and their families, while ensuring Canada never forgets.

Thank you for your donation to the Poppy Fund.




Through your donations, the Quebec Provincial Command Poppy Fund provides financial assistance and support to Veterans, including Canadian Armed Forces and RCMP, and their families who are in need.

The Poppy Campaign is organized and run by local Legion volunteers at over 1400 branches across Canada and abroad.

Poppy Funds are held in trust at every level of the Legion and the use of these trust funds are strictly controlled, with appropriate approval processes.

Branch executives are accountable for Poppy Fund expenditures and are required to inform the public through local media of the results of their campaign, including contributions received and disposition of funds.

You may contact your local Legion branch to request information on their Poppy Campaign.

Details on the Poppy Trust Fund can be found in the Legion`s Poppy Manual.
