Friends of HMCS HAIDA is a registered charitable organization formed in 1989. While we work cooperatively with Parks Canada to assist in the preservation and maintenance of HMCS HAIDA as a historic ship, naval memorial and a national historic site.

  • Our volunteers work together with Parks Canada staff in maintenance and restoration projects onboard and serve as docents, helping visitors with questions, explanations and stories and generally helping to bring the ship to life.
  • We run educational programs including school visits and seek to encourage the interest of youth and cadet groups in the ship and to make their visits meaningful.
  • We strive promote the use of the ship as a Naval Memorial by our participation in the annual ATHABASKAN Memorial service and other events throughout the year.
  • We work to preserve naval traditions and to build links between the current Royal Canadian Navy, and its past through ship visits and outreach to the fleet.
