About The Canadian Fire Fighters Museum

Presently closed for at least two years while a new location is sought. The Canadian Firefighters 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.  The apparatus collection focuses on three eras: Hand Drawn and Hand Powered (1754-1902), Horse Drawn (1850-1938), and Motorized (1907 to present day).

We have 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.
