In December 1982, after 40 years of service as a warship and peacetime auxiliary vessel, HMCS Sackville was retired from the Canadian Navy and turned over to a group of naval volunteers for restoration to her wartime configuration. In 1985 the Government of Canada declared HMCS Sackville Canada’s Naval Memorial.
The Canadian Naval Memorial Trust now maintains and operates Sackville for the benefit of all Canadians and visitors to Canada, supported by volunteers, members of the Trust and the tax deductible contributions of donors.
The ship is open to the public from June to September complete with her own wharf and interpretation centre at Sackville Landing, Lower Water Street in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The location overlooks Halifax Harbour from which so many corvette-escorted convoys sailed between 1939 and 1945.
