The 6 Field Engineer Museum was officially incorporated in 2007 after many years as an informal organization. It is a modest collection located in the Lt Col J.P. Fell Armoury and includes photographs, books, maps drawings, documents and regalia. The collection was amassed from personal donations and archived materials from WWI, WWII, UN peacekeeping and NATO missions.
The Museum is maintained by volunteers and funded through grants, corporate and personal donations. Although space is provided in the armoury no public funding (DND) is provided for operation and maintenance of the museum.
We gratefully acknowledge the support of 39 Combat Engineer Regiment, 6 Engineer Squadron, the City of North Vancouver, Royal Canadian Legion Branch 263 (Coquitlam) and Royal Canadian Legion Branch 118 (North Vancouver).

The mission of the 6 Field Engineer Squadron Museum is to support the Regimental Museum in preserving the heritage of the Royal Canadian Engineers and its predecessors in British Columbia by establishing and operating a military museum to educate the general public and members of the Canadian Forces through lectures, discussions, workshops, visits, publications, research, and exhibits in real and electronic form, and to cooperate with other public and private organizations devoted to the same or similar purposes.
To meet our mission goals the museum is open to the public on Remembrance Day when scores of visitors attend the museum to learn more of the unit's 100 plus years of history serving in WW 1, WW 2, NATO and UN operations. For other opening times for the museum see our "HOURS" page
In addition the museum stands ready to host visitor groups such as families, students and cadets that they may learn more of the unit's and the country's heritage of service in war and peace.
We also have provided families of veterans with information regarding their loved one's past service.
