Poppy Campaign

Back to homepage

The Poppy Campaign starts on the last Friday of October.

"And when you see those old men with their medals shining in the sun, remember the price they paid for those shiny bits of metal and that they too were young once."


The intention of the Poppy Campaign is to remind Canadians of the sacrifice of the 117,000 Canadians who died in the military, Merchant Navy and Ferry Command in two world wars, the Korean War and other theatres globally.

It is conducted each year for about 2 weeks prior to November 11th in order to raise funds for needy Canadian veterans, ex-service members and their dependants, as well as Commonwealth veterans.
