Biography / Administrative history
H Division was initially established at Fort Macleod in 1885. The designation "H" was not in use from 1895-1897. In 1898 it was reestablished in Tagish and then, between 1900 and 1903, the division was moved to Whitehorse. Apart from a brief appearance in Vancouver between 1920 and 1923, the designation was not in use from 1910 to 1931. Finally, in 1932, H Division was resurrected and assigned to Halifax where it replaced the former Nova Scotia Police. H Division is currently under the direction of the Deputy Commissioner Atlantic Region. RCMP website,
