    The Canadian Forces Appreciation Fare 

    The Canadian Forces Appreciation Fare is a year-round discount offered to serving members and veterans of the Canadian Forces. Designed as a token of appreciation for their current and past efforts in protecting the interests of the people of Canada at home and abroad, it has been well-received since its introduction in 2009.

    This year-round program is available to Canadian Forces personnel, veterans and up to three companions on the same reservation and provides free passenger fare on the Port aux Basques/North Sydney ferry route, or a 50 per cent discount on passenger fare when travelling on the Argentia/North Sydney ferry service. Please note that neither vehicle fares nor on board services are included in this promotion.  


    In an effort to simplify the eligibility process for this fare program, Marine Atlantic has worked with the Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services to ensure all eligible members and veterans have access to the program.

    To facilitate this process, the following two cards are accepted as eligibility for the program:

    CF1FC – CF card 

    CF1FC – CF card

    CF1FC – V card

    CF1FC – V card

    An eligible individual must possess one of the above cards at the time of booking a reservation and must also present it at the time of travel.

    For Canadian Armed Forces personnel and veterans who do not have these cards, the CF One Program of the Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services would be pleased to assist by visiting their website at www.cf1fc.ca or by calling 1-855-245-0330 Ext 6.

    Booking a Reservation

    To make a reservation under the Canadian Forces Appreciation Fare, please contact Marine Atlantic reservations at 1-800-341-7981 or visit the Marine Atlantic website at www.marineatlantic.ca.

    The primary individual on the reservation must possess the appropriate CF1 identification card (not necessarily the driver of the vehicle). At the time of making the reservation, the Canadian Forces member must indicate the type of CF1 identification card being used, as well as present the identification card and valid photo at the time of check-in to confirm eligibility under the program. This offer cannot be combined with any other promotion and is for personal related travel only. Standard cancellation and amendment fees apply.
