HMCS Oriole

HMCS Oriole calling in to Shelburne, N.S. as part of Centennial Atlantic Canada Tour
August 1, 2021– Department of National Defence / Royal Canadian Navy
HMCS Oriole, the sail training vessel of the Royal Canadian Navy will be in Shelburne, N.S. supporting the Centennial Cup Yacht Races from Aug 6 - 9, 2021.
This year marks an exceptional time for HMCS Oriole as the ship celebrates its 100th anniversary. Looking to share this experience with Canadians, HMCS Oriole is sailing throughout Atlantic Canada making several port visits. At each stop, the public is welcome to come see the ship, meet the crew and share any stories they may have about sailing with Oriole. The ship will be at anchor and supporting race activities but viewable to the public from shore.
Oriole was built for the Gooderham family in 1921 and launched on June 4 the same year, in Ontario. During the Second World War, the ship was chartered by the Navy and eventually moved to Halifax as a training vessel, proving highly valuable in this role. Oriole was commissioned into the Navy in 1952 and moved to the west coast where the ship would spend the next 60 years. In 2017, Oriole sailed around through the Panama Canal and back to Halifax where it is now based.

Potential Drought Season

In light of the potential for another drought season, we would like the public to start preparing now by conserving water and thinking of ways to be more self-sufficient in water collection.

Shelburne County East Emergency Management will continue to explore options for additional supports for sustainable access to water in our communities. As in previous years, public water collection opportunities will be made available as the need arises. Please check regularly for updates at https://www.facebook.com/shelburneemo.
We recognize that there are vulnerable individuals/households in our communities that do not have the means to address the issue on their own. We are committed to continuing to help them within reason and this assistance will be determined on a case-by-case basis. All inquiries related to special assistance should be sent directly to the EMO Coordinator at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
Drought conditions are expected to continue annually and may begin earlier and/last longer each year. There are some proactive activities you can do around your home to conserve water and prepare for a water shortage. Everyone is encouraged to collect rainwater by capturing downspout run off or large container collection.
If you are experiencing a low or dry well it is important to report this issue. Reporting water shortages is critical for tracking, identifying and providing community solutions. Report ALL water shortages that last longer than a few days to the local SCEEMO Coordinator, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
