PROMOTING REMEMBRANCE

Promoting Remembrance is part of The Port Credit Legion’s mission and has been one of our principal objectives since our inception. The Port Credit Legion inspires the Community to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, and to honour those who served and continue to serve today. Remembrance is a year-long commitment and we endeavour to promote it through a number of programs, services and resources.
