Poppy Campaign and Remembrance

Steinbach Branch #190 distributes of thousands of Poppies to local businesses, schools and other venues during this annual campaign.  Members of the community will also have the opportunity to pick up a Poppy from members of the Air Cadets, Scouts and Guides at local businesses.  The campaign begins on the last Friday of October.

Donations received during the Poppy Campaign are deposited in a separate account and may only be used for specific purposes as outlined by the Royal Canadian Legion’s Poppy Manual. The Legion is able to assist our Veterans, their families and our communities so long as the rules, as outlined by Dominion Command, are followed and approval is given by the local Branch membership.

The Poppy has been a symbol of Remembrance since 1921 and is also known internationally as a symbol of collective reminiscence to honour those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. The Poppy Campaign is the foundation of the Legion’s Remembrance Program, which provides Poppies to members of the community as well as the opportunity to participate in Remembrance Day services.


Please wear a poppy or a poppy sticker to show your respect for those who serve.
