Take the Tour to Remember
Every second year (in the odd numbered years) Ontario Command branches participate in the Pilgrimage of Remembrance Program. The program, a tour of Canadian memorials and war graves in Europe, is organized by the Royal Canadian Legion Dominion Command Youth Committee.
Applications are received and presented from each District in Ontario Command. When reviewing each application, the following factors shall be recognized:
- Must be the age of majority;
- Must be a member of The Royal Canadian Legion and possess proper Legion Dress while on the pilgrimage;
- Must be active as a leader of youth groups and youth programs, e.g. teachers, instructors, coaches, committee chairmen, Cadets, etc.
- Must attach a separate document to their application form, outlining how they expect to pass on their experiences gained to youth groups, Legion branches, the media and other organizations upon their return. These individuals must also be able to develop their own video or slide presentation and provincial commands are to determine the expectations for presentation.
The successful provincial candidate will be selected from among the qualified applicants. Final approval rests with the Dominion Youth Committee.
For more information, we encourage you to contact your local branch, or the Ontario Command Office.
