Please be advised that when you enter the HMCS Tecumseh base, you are on a Defence Establishment and subject to all orders, notices and regulations of being on a Defence Establishment. This applies to all persons including civilian, navy league and military. Everyone is required to comply with all orders, notices and regulations on base as per Defence Controlled Access Area Regulation and obey directions of an Officer or other person who is designated as a security guard under this act.
Access to the HMCS Tecumseh Ship, main building, is now restricted to the main front entrance only as per order from the Commanding Officer of HMCS Tecumseh. Part of this access procedure requires that any person entering the building as a guest must be properly identified and signed in and out. Unless otherwise authorized, parents are only allowed on the main parade deck for colors and sunset and then must depart the facility between these times.
We ask that you obey all signs on base including No Parking areas and not parking in Reserved Parking Stalls as indicated by a sign. The safety and security of the cadets and your safety and security are important and we ask your understanding and cooperation.
