Founded in 1925 as the Canadian Legion of the British Empire Services League, it was incorporated by Parliament in 1926. In 1962, Elizabeth II gave the Legion the right to affix the word "Royal" to its name. The Queen of Canada, is royal patron of the Legion and the Governor General of Canada is also traditionally appointed as a patron of the group.
Historically the Legion Hall was the social centre of many Canadian towns. This was especially the case in the provinces with severe restrictions on the sale of alcohol, rules the legions were generally exempt from.
