Each year, about 19 million poppies are distributed in communities throughout Canada. Officially adopted by Canada in 1921 by The Great War Veterans Association––the founding group of the Royal Canadian Legion––poppies are recognized as the national symbol of remembrance for those who have served our country, in wartime and in peacetime.
