Veterans' Licence Plate Now Available for Motorcycles
To recognize their courage and dedication, Ontario veterans can now get a veterans' licence plate for motorcycles.
Like the veterans' passenger vehicle plate, this new motorcycle plate recognizes the commitment made by past and current veterans, including those who served:
During WWII and the Korean War,
In peacekeeping missions, and
At least three or more years with the Canadian Regular Forces.
The licence plate features a red poppy with the word "veteran" and there are already more than 34,000 veteran passenger vehicle plates in Ontario.
Today's announcement builds on other initiatives that recognize the courage of veterans, including dedicating the "Highway of Heroes" along Highway 401 between Trenton and the intersection of the Don Valley Parkway and Highway 404 in Toronto.
In honour of their service, Ontario veterans can get the plate free of charge. A $5.00 administration fee will be charged by the Royal Canadian Legion to verify eligibility.
The poppy has been a symbol of those who died while fighting for peace since it was first distributed in Canada in 1921.
In November 2003, the Province introduced veteran graphic licence plates for passenger vehicles to honour and recognize Ontario's men and women who have served our country.
There are more than 70 graphic licence plate options available to Ontario motorists.
