  Ride to remember those who sacrificed - June 3rd, 2018

The National Memorial Ride is an event that brings together motorcycle enthusiasts and supporters to remember and commemorate Canada’s Fallen Veterans. Held annually on the first Sunday in June, riders join a motorcycle procession through Ottawa to the National Military Cemetery at Beechwood, where they participate in a Service of Remembrance and wreath laying ceremony to commemorate Canada’s Fallen military servicemen and women. This event offers a unique opportunity for riders to share their pride in Canada’s Veterans and honour those who served their country.

Additional information and registration forms are available here.

The Legion serves all Veterans

The Royal Canadian Legion was founded by Veterans and for Veterans. We advocate for the care and benefits for all who served Canada, regardless of when or where they served. The Legion also provides representation and assistance to Veterans, including currently serving Canadian Armed Forces and RCMP, and their families, and access to our services is available to them at no cost, whether or not they are Legion members. The Legion helps thousands of Veterans each year and makes significant positive changes in their lives. 

The Legion exists so that Canada never forgets

The Legion understands the importance of honouring past sacrifices and acknowledging the courage of those who served and still serve today. Through Remembrance Day ceremonies, the Poppy campaigncommemorative activitiesyouth education programs and more, the Legion helps Canadians to honour and remember.

The Legion serves our communities and our country

Legion Branches are the cornerstone of communities across Canada, and provide one of the largest volunteer bases in the country. With more than 1,400 Branches from coast to coast to coast, our members provide local services and supports to build a stronger Canada. Whether helping local Veterans, supporting seniors, providing youth sports programs, raising funds, volunteering to help those in need, or simply offering a place to gather for fun and celebration, Legionnaires provide essential services in their communities.
