• About the Museum:

  • CFFM first opened its doors in 1984.  Since then it has pursued its goal of becoming a national centre for documentation, preservation, education, and celebration of Canadian firefighting heritage and community safety awareness.  The Museum’s collections 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, wildland, and airport.  The collections encompass equipment of many kinds, 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 engines.

    You can help support the museum’s re-building activity by purchasing a membership here.
