National Air Force Museum of Canada
Originally founded in 1984 as the RCAF Memorial Library and Museum, the National Air Force Museum of Canada (NAFMC) has developed and expanded to where it now enjoys a national reputation, the largest number of aircraft on static display and the most skilled team of restoration volunteers of any military museum in the country.
Relocated in 1994 to the former curling rink on RCAF Rd, 8 Wing/Canadian Forces Base Trenton, the museum presents more than 3,500 artifacts and memorabilia depicting major historical events, notable aviation achievements, as well as the social history of Canada’s Air Force.
Two subsequent building expansions, the Rotary Restoration Shop in 1996 and in 2005, an additional 7,000 m2 of display space, evolved around the acquisition and restoration of one of the most versatile bombers of the Second World War, the Handley Page Halifax. With the interior of the expansion building near completion, the NAFMC continues to refine and reorganize the collection in anticipation of the installation of the new permanent exhibits.

Mrs. B’s Country Candy
Mrs. B’s Country Candy is proud to be located in Brighton, Ontario, near Presqu’ile Provincial Park on the north shore of Lake Ontario. Nestled among the apple orchards and maple sugar bushes, we know country living and we know country goodness – especially the kind Grandma used to make.
Our products are different because they are made the old fashioned way, hand-made on-site one batch at a time to ensure quality and freshness. We use no salt or preservatives. Only the finest available ingredients are used to make our candy. Combining these quality ingredients with our own mixing and cooking techniques produces richer, smoother, and creamier treats. Mrs. B’s also carries a wide selection of other local products, hand-made by the finest confectioners, chocolatiers, master chefs, and award winning maple syrup producers.
Mrs. B’s is a popular destination for day-trippers from Toronto and the Greater Golden Horseshoe in the west to Kingston in the east and beyond. We are conveniently located in Brighton’s downtown core, at the junction of Main Street and Prince Edward Street. Mrs. B’s friendly staff look forward to your visit.
