HMCS Haida National Site of Canada, Ontario

HMCS Haida, was designated as a National Historic Site because of two reasons. Firstly, the HMCS Haida has a lengthy role in naval combat and secondly because she is last of the Tribal class destroyers. Twenty seven of these destroyers, built in Britain in the early 1930’s were of a new and innovative design. They were built for use in the navies of three countries within the commonwealth – Australia, Canada and Great Britain. Thirteen were sunk during WWII and thirteen were scraped after the war. Only the HMCS Haida is left. The ship was designated as a National Historic Site of Canada in 1984. HMCS Haida arrived in Hamilton Harbour on August 30, 2003, the 60 th anniversary of her commissioning.
