Come volunteer with us!

In previous years, the HCS's volunteer program has accumulated among the most hours of any of the volunteer programs at Parks Canada's historic sites.

Help us welcome visitors or dress in period costume and demonstrate what a soldier or his family's life was like in the mid-19th century. If you're a piper or drummer, come and be a part of our large and growing band system.

Fun for all ages

Whether you're 8 years old or 80, we have a spot for you. Find out more by contacting us at (902) 426-1990 or by email at [email protected].



All donations received are used to bring history to life at the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site of Canada, by hiring young men and women to portray the British Garrison in Halifax at the time of our nation's birth.
