About CFB Halifax

Welcome to Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Halifax, home of Canada's East Coast Navy and the country's largest military base. CFB Halifax provides administrative, logistics, IT and executive services support as well as port operations and emergency services to Maritime Forces Atlantic (MARLANT) and assigned lodger units.

The Base supports approximately 11,000 Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members and civilian Department of National Defence (DND) employees – most of whom work and live in the Halifax Regional Municipality – as well over 4,500 reservists and 14,000 youth members of the sea, air and army cadet corps in the area.
Our team contributes directly to the local economic community not only as a major employer, but through our members’ involvement with various local non-profit and business organizations. Our members are also deeply rooted in the larger Halifax community outside of working hours, volunteering with local charities, at schools, as coaches and more.

The strength of CFB Halifax lies in our talented people. They are the core of what we do and the reason we are able to provide world-class support that – both directly and indirectly – impacts CAF operations and exercises at home and abroad.

CFB Halifax has come a long way since the founding of the Halifax dockyard and continues to provide outstanding support to both the Royal Canadian Navy and the local community in which we are so lucky to live, work and play.
