• Our History:


  • The Canadian Fire Fighters Museum opened its doors in 1984.  Since then the Museum has evolved into a national centre for documentation, preservation, education and celebration of Canadian firefighting heritage and safety awareness.  The Museum houses a collection of artifacts that tell the story of the vital role that Firefighters have played in the lives of communities across Canada.  The Museum strives to represent all Canadian firefighters: professional or volunteer, industrial, military, wild land, or airport.

    You'll see equipment of every kind, from all eras and all parts of Canada: antique fire helmets, an amazing array of fire hydrants, fire related signage, safety equipment, toys and of course our vintage fire trucks.
