List of Royal Canadian Navy bases (1911–68)
All RCN shore-based facilities in this period followed the naming tradition of the Royal Navy, whereby the prefix HMCS or Naval Radio Station (NRS), was affixed. This tradition is somewhat maintained under the RCN's successor, Canadian Forces Maritime Command where certain facilities such as HMCS Trinity and NRS Aldergrove, are still formally referred to in this fashion, likely out of tradition, however the entire bases at the deep water ports of Victoria and Halifax are now referred to as a Canadian Forces Base or CFB. For Canadian Forces Bases operated by the modern Royal Canadian Navy see Canadian Forces Bases#Royal Canadian Navy.
