Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve

1939 – 1945

In 1923, the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve (RCNVR) was established out of the former Royal Naval Canadian Volunteer Reserve. During the Second World War, the RCNVR became the backbone of the Canadian Navy, recruiting officers and sailors. By the end of the war, Canada possessed the third-largest navy in the world, with a complement of nearly 100,000. Most of these men and women were members of the RCNVR.

After the Second World War ended, the RCNVR was merged into the Royal Canadian Naval Reserve.
