About The Royal Canadian Legion International Eastern Zone, USA

The Royal Canadian Legion is a veterans organization. Members are veterans, friends of veterans and people who want to help make our community better.

The United States is split into two Zones with the RCL International Eastern Zone, USA responsible for all the Royal Canadian Legion Posts located east of the Mississippi River and the RCL International Western Zone, USA responsible for those located west of the Mississippi River. The Eastern Zone currently has eight Posts with 475 members and the Western Zone has five Branches with over 200 members.

The Royal Canadian Legion is made up of Royal Canadian Legion members from the various Posts. Election of officers occurs every two years at the Convention meeting on the last weekend in September.

In the 1980’s and 1990’s, the governing body was known as Great Lakes State Command. In the 1990’s, the name was changed to Central Command and The Royal Canadian Legion Dominion Command, the main governing body of the RCL which is located in Ottawa, Ontario designated us to be known as the Eastern US Zone.
