The RCMP St. Roch became famous as the first ship to traverse the difficult and dangerous Northwest Passage from west to east from 1940-42. At the time this was promoted as voyage to establish Canadian Sovereignty in the high Arctic. The true purpose of the journey was part of a secret, war-time mission.

The Vancouver Maritime Museum has developed a new pop-up exhibit telling this story. In the summer of 2016, this exhibit will travel up to the Arctic aboard a One Ocean Expeditions vessel where it will be displayed in the communities of Cambridge Bay and Pond Inlet.

Funding from the Department of Canadian Heritage made this exhibition possible and enabled the texts to be translated into French, Inuktitut, and Inuinnaqtun.
