To meet the growing need for professional training in gerontology, the Legion provides fellowships to doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and occupational therapists who wish to pursue post graduate study in the field.
Dedicated to the principles of dignity and independent living for seniors, the Legion and its branches support a number of community services. These include transport, vehicles for the disabled, visits, foot care clinics, meals on wheels, telephone assurance, home maintenance, diners' clubs and meeting facilities.
The Legion is committed to providing acceptable and affordable housing for seniors and veterans. More than 100 branches have housing projects on which they spend $150,000 annually. While some projects are for veterans only, most offer accommodation to all seniors. Current housing is valued at $251 million.
