Fort McNab NHS – a part of the Halifax Defence Complex

British and Canadian military forces built many forts and batteries over the years to protect Halifax and its harbour. Five of these fortifications, known as the Halifax Defence Complex, are national historic sites owned and operated by Parks Canada. These sites are being preserved and maintained for current and future generations to discover.

Begin your exploration of these sites at the Halifax Citadel NHS for more information about the Halifax Defence Complex.
