HMCS Sackville Room Rentals

Last Revised November 28, 2017

We can provide a number of meeting rooms which can be rented either by the hour or by the day.  The hourly rate is $125 + HST, the daily rate for Wednesday is $800 + HST and the daily rate for Thursday is $400 + HST (which is a savings of 20% if you require access the entire day). It is important to note that 100% of the proceeds of all meetings held on-board the ship during DEFSEC Atlantic go to support the Canadian Naval Memorial Trust.

Meeting rooms located on HMCS Sackville are all on-board the ship and are described along with photos below. They are a great option if you would like to provide a great, historic atmosphere to your meeting. They offer a level of privacy beyond an open meeting on the exhibition floor. All rooms are equipped with at least an electrical duplex (2 outlets). If we have advance notice of your requirements, they can also be equipped with audio-visual equipment and even catered, at a nominal expense.

If you have any questions about meeting rooms availability, facilities, or would like to book a room, please contact the Deputy Director, John Benson at john@defsecatlantic.ca.

Starting in 2010, DEFSEC Atlantic has been able to expand its selection of on-site meeting spaces by utilizing some of the suitable spaces on-board HMCS Sackville.  The ship is berthed at Pier 23 during the event, alongside the Cunard Centre and provides a number of spaces with a historically interesting atmosphere where private meetings can be held.

There are 5 locations on the ship which can be utilized and are listed below, complete with capacity numbers and an image of the space in question.

All locations have access to power, in the event that equipment such as a laptop needs to be plugged in during a meeting.

DEFSEC Atlantic staff will be available to guide you to the location of the ship at the time of your meeting where you will then be greeted by one of the volunteers from the HMCS Sackville who will show you to the location of your meeting room within the ship.

Please note that since this is a wartime-era ship, some of the access into the rooms can be a bit steep compared to regular stairs and care should be taken when going through these parts of the ship.

The areas of the ship which will be available for meetings are:

The Board Room
Capacity: Up to 12 people

Please note this room also has a large SmartBoard and Internet capability.
The Forward Messdeck
Capacity: Up to 8 people
The After Messdeck
Capacity: Up to 12 people
The Wardroom Mess
Capacity: Up to 12 people
The Wheelhouse
Capacity: Up to 2 people
