The aim of Submarines-Canada is to function as an independent source of information and advice on Canadian submarines and submarine operations. This website is not connected with the Royal Canadian Navy, nor with government at any level. In maintaining this independence, it is hoped that those people having an interest in Canadian maritime affairs will be able to develop a balanced perspective on submarine issues through the dissemination of knowledge.

The website will fulfill three main roles. The first role is to act as a portal for information about Canadian submarines and operations. The second role is to function as a tool for collating data about serving and former submariners for historic purposes. This legacy project will be made available to the national archives for genealogical and future research. The third role of the site is to provide former crewmembers of HMCS Chicoutimi with a forum for communication about issues that pertain specifically to them.

Watch this space as the site is developed.
