How You Can Help

The cost of maintaining and operating HMCS SACKVILLE is the responsibility of the Canadian Naval Memorial Trust (CNMT) which is made up of Trustees from all walks of life. Revenue is raised through the annual contributions of Trustees. CNMT is also assisted by the Department of National Defence which provides basic maintenance and related services. To ensure the long-term maintenance and operation of Canada’s Naval Memorial, it is necessary to generate additional revenue. There are several ways you can help:

1. Become a Member of the Trust

There are two membership categories. Join more than 1,100 Trustees across Canada and in the U.S., U.K. and other countries who support the Trust’s objectives.
