Daring Do is Daring Done
The Elgin Military Museum is proud of having met the challenge of incredible hurdles to preserve and operate HMCS OJIBWA, a cold war Oberon Class submarine, as part of a Museum - reflecting our naval heritage for the benefit of future generations. Now, along with the restoration of the submarine, our new goal is to build a museum dedicated to Canadian Naval History alongside our Cold War Warrior HMCS Ojibwa.
Source of Canadian Pride
Canada has a very proud military history of courage, innovation, and preparedness. We have some of the best trained military personnel in the world, so it's no surprise that HMCS OJIBWA and her crew were known as the best of the best in the world of submariners. They really did go where no one else would go.
Now, as a museum ship, HMCS OJIBWA is revered as one of the most unique attractions in Ontario and has received many awards for the amazing experience that she provides.
It is time to peel back the curtain on some of the exploits of the Silent Service during the Cold War when espionage, stealth and secrets put Canada in the thick of this clandestine world.
Enter the World of our Cold War Heroes
Today, HMCS OJIBWA has a different mission yet, our Cold War Warrior continues to do the unexpected. OJIBWA is a thousand miles from the sea in Port Burwell, Ontario on the north shore of Lake Erie. She is hiding in plain sight, welcoming visitors from around the world who marvel at the true stories of Canadian Cold War Submariners. Learn of the hardships they experienced, the battles they won, and see first-hand the environment they called home. Are you ready to walk for a while in their shoes aboard Canada's best silent hunter?
