Founded in 1999, the Alberni Project is dedicated to preserving the stories and history of the men who served on HMCS ALBERNI (a Canadian Flower Class Corvette) from 1941-1944. Since that time TAP has expanded from a simple website memorial to a year round traveling exhibit (entitled: The Alberni Project), a registered non-profit society (TAPS), and a year round museum and memorial (HAMM) in downtown Courtenay, BC.
Funded mostly through private donations and corporate sponsorships, HAMM and TAP exhibits have been visited by more than 10,000 people in the years since its founding. With guest exhibits such as ANNE FRANK: A HISTORY FOR TODAY and WAR BRIDES: ONE WAY PASSAGE to HOW I LONG TO SEE YOU: 1914-1918 visitors have enjoyed learning of the individual stories of Canadians in times of war and peace from the Great War to the present day.
Our volunteer staff will help shed extra light on various displays within the museum; displays that are rotated frequently so things are a bit different the next time you visit.
Future plans include electronic tour guides to our collection and remote field trip for schools that can’t travel to HAMM in person.
