The Royal Canadian Legion's Definition of a Veteran

In its efforts to better reflect Canadian involvement in conflicts and peace support operations, the Legion delegates at the 45th Dominion Convention voted unanimously to update the definition of a Veteran contained in its General By-Laws.

The new definition of a Veteran in the Legion General By-Laws is now as follows:

A Veteran is any person who is serving or has honourably served in the Canadian Armed Forces, the Commonwealth or its wartime allies, or as a Regular Member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, or as a Peace Officer in a Special Duty Area or on a Special Duty Operation, or who has served in the Merchant Navy or Ferry Command during wartime.
