Royal Canadian Navy

HMCS YORK is Toronto’s Naval Reserve Division. The unit has 400+ Non-Commissioned Members and Officers, with most training part-time, and some serving full time on voluntary contract availability.

Our primary mission is force generation, to train sailors to support missions of the Naval Reserves, the Royal Canadian Navy, and the Canadian Armed Forces. Our members may serve locally, at bases or coasts across Canada, or overseas, wherever the CAF is tasked in times of domestic relief efforts, national defence operations, or international deployments.

Our secondary mission is to enhance the RCN’s presence in the GTA, through strategic outreach and recruitment.
