  • Lock (optional, day use lockers only).

As a reminder, while PSP Halifax’s primary focus is on ensuring the operational readiness of CAF members, currently serving/employed Defence Team members, both military and civilian, will be permitted use of this facility. Due to limited capacity, the gym will not be available to veterans, family members or the general public at this time.


  • Effective Monday, January 8, the parking spaces immediately beside the Stadacona Fitness & Sports Centre (including the accessible spaces) will be designated for gym patrons and will no longer be available to general parking pass holders from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays. You will be asked to provide your license plate number when signing into the gym if using one of these spaces.
  • The visitor lot on the north end of the Naval Museum of Halifax (building S20) may be used as overflow parking for gym patrons.
  • Defence Team members with a Dockyard/Stadacona parking pass should use general parking areas when going to the Stadacona gym unless they have physical/medical limitations that necessitate the use of close proximity (gym patron) parking.
  • Members working at Windsor Park, Willow Park and HMC Dockyard are reminded that they may also use the CFB Halifax shuttle service to access Stadacona property during daytime working hours (7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.).
  • Motorcycle parking will be relocated from the gym parking area to a lot on the south end of building S82.
