Canada’s Naval Memorial
This Canadian Naval Memorial is in fact the ‘Soul’ of the Navy. That ‘Soul’ was shaped and imparted to Sackville and to the Navy by the leadership, spirit and actions of men like Alan Easton, her very successful early captain, and the ship’s companies that they led. HMCS Sackville is the last of Canada’s 123 corvettes, one of many convoy escort vessels built in Canada and the United Kingdom during WW II. She is Canada’s oldest fighting warship and has been our official Naval Memorial since 1985. It is very appropriate that the ship is in Halifax, Nova Scotia, as this “East Coast Port” was an important assembly point and destination for convoys during the Battle of the Atlantic.
Watch our video to learn about the ship’s incredible story!

Battle of the Atlantic Commemorative Concert April 29th at 1900 at Spatz Theatre, Citadel High School
This is the Kick-Off of Battle of the Atlantic Commemorations in the Halifax area, and an opportunity to share the outstanding Stadacona Band and soloists with our extended naval family and the civilian population. The aim of the concert is of course to commemorate an important occasion in our Nation’s history and to remember those who have no known grave as they lost their lives at sea. We also hope to raise some funds to support operation of HMCS Sackville, our Canadian Naval Memorial.
