Where the History of Canada's Navy Comes Alive!   

Ships of the RCN - Photo Collection

Photo Collection The Naval Museum of Manitoba has an extensive photo collection of Canadian warships from the conception of the Royal Canadian Navy, to the present. It is in this area that we wish to present this collection, along with the basic data for each unit.

Our database has recently been updated. It now contains vessels from 1910 to the present. (Over 480 ships photos!) Work is in progress to complete this database to include all auxiliary vessels from all eras. In other words, if a ship existed in the Canadian Navy from 1910 to present, we want it to be in our database. We still have some work to do, so bear with us.

If you know the name of the ship you are looking for Search for a Ship by Name.

If you know the CLASS of the ship you are looking for Browse a whole Class of Ships.

Canada's Aircraft Carriers can also be found in this special area.

Over 480 vessels appear in this database at present. If you find any errors please E-Mail the Webmaster.
