Our Story

The NAFMC Foundation is a not-for-profit volunteer organization established in 2001 to support the ongoing financial requirements of the National Air Force Museum of Canada.

It relies solely on volunteers and the philanthropic support of donors. Although residing on Canada’s largest military base the Museum relies on private sources for 80% of operational funding. Only 20% is provided by the Federal government. The National Air Force Museum of Canada was founded in 1984. It strives to engage, educate, and celebrate Canada’s storied aviation history. The museum is home to over 35 aircraft and encompasses almost 23,000 square meters of artifacts, exhibits and memorabilia of Canada’s Air Force. Welcoming more than 60,000 visitors annually the Museum continues to be one of the most attended military Museums in Canada and a main attraction for tourists to the Quinte region in Southeastern Ontario. The vision of the future is to create a substantially expanded and inspiring showcase for public education and enjoyment.
