List of Royal Canadian Air Force stations

This is a list of stations operated by the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF), or stations where RCAF units existed, from 1924 until unification into the Canadian Forces on February 1, 1968.

Some of the RCAF stations listed in this article link to facility descriptions containing the prefix "CFB" (Canadian Forces Base) or "CFS" (Canadian Forces Station). These facilities were at one time RCAF stations, but changed to CFBs or CFSs following unification of the Canadian Armed Forces in 1968. Most former RCAF stations still in use by the Canadian Forces are still operated by the RCAF (renamed from Air Command or AIRCOM in 2011). During the 1990s, most RCAF squadrons on Canadian Forces Bases were reorganized into "wings" as the primary lodger unit. Consequently, many Canadian Forces Bases used as air force bases are frequently referred to without the prefix CFB, e.g., "CFB Greenwood" is also referred to as "14 Wing Greenwood", with 14 Wing being the primary lodger unit at CFB Greenwood.

Before 1968, all RCAF facilities followed the naming tradition of the Royal Air Force, whereby the prefix RCAF (vs. RAF) was affixed.
