About Us

Established in 1895 to ensure adequate naval defence, the Navy League of Canada’s main objective was to promote an interest in Maritime Affairs throughout Canada, while also keeping watch over policies relevant to Canada’s waters.

The two World Wars placed heavy dependence on the Navy League and its ability to support Merchant Navy and operate hostels. However, by the end of the Second World War and the closing out of its War Services operations, the Navy League was again able to turn its attention to its primary objectives: continued support of youth training and promoting a knowledge of Maritime Affairs.
