If you’ve thought about joining the Canadian Armed Forces but find the Regular Force too earth-bound for you and the Air Force too up in the clouds, then why not consider the Navy as a career path. Home of the Great Lakes and virtually bounded by water, Canada is one of the leading maritime nations on earth. You stand to reap the benefits of over 100 years of sailing experience. Canada’s navy tirelessly safeguards our maritime approaches, protecting offshore resourcesand actively taking part in global security.

The Navy currently consists of 8,500 regular sailors, 5,000 reserves and approximately 5,000 civilian personnel. As withany large and complex organization, people are their greatest asset. You can become a part of this tightly knit teamof professionals. Comprising ‘formations’ of destroyers, frigates, submarines, supply ships, coastal defence and many more auxillary vessels you are certain to find a home with us.

These ‘formations’, known as the Maritime Forces Atlantic and Pacific, control training, fleet maintenance and deployment readiness in times of domestic or international requirements. The Navys’ operational area is roughly between the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, and it participates in joint Canada/U.S. and NATO exercises sertraline 100mg tablets.
