License Plate Program
The Support Our Troops License Plate Program, adopted by Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario and Saskatchewan, is an easy and creative way for Canadians to rally support for our military in an impactful way. These customized license plates feature our signature Yellow Ribbon, which exemplifies the story of Canadians from coast to coast coming together to show their gratitude to our women and men in uniform.
Funds raised from these specialty plates support current and former members of the Canadian Armed Forces and their families. Learn more about our programs here
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
“The men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces provide a tremendous service to our province, country and the international community. It is difficult to find ways to truly express our appreciation to them and their families for their service and sacrifice. This program enables Albertans to show their support in a small, but meaningful way. It is inspiring to see these plates on so many Alberta vehicles, knowing the significant difference these donations have made to the lives of military families.”
Nate Glubish, Service Alberta Minister
Alberta launched its Support Our Troops specialty license plate in 2014. Albertans have responded strongly, having purchased 45,771 plates since then. Almost $2.5 million has been allocated to support local initiatives for serving members, military youth, and veterans in the province.
Manitoba began offering customized Yellow Ribbon plates in 2015. The $121,800 in proceeds have been returned to the community through scholarships for military youth pursuing post-secondary education in the province.
Ontario was the first province to adopt the License Plate Program, which has raised over $2,000 since 2009. These funds directly support a wide range of programs for the Canadian Armed Forces community.
Our specialty plates have been extremely successful in Saskatchewan. Since 2016, almost $75,000 has been allocated to support military families in the province.
