The Navy has an authorized complement of 104 officers and 812 men, a large majority serving under 7 year enlistments.  In addition certain specialists are loaned from the British Royal Navy.  The Reserve consists of from 70 to 113 officers and from 430 to 1026 men recruited from sea-faring personnel. Bases are at Halifax, Nova Scotia and Esquimalt, British Columbia; ships of the Royal Navy are fairly often seen at Halifax.

The ships of the Royal Canadian Navy are:

Thus there are 541 total crew aboard the commissioned vessels (the Festubert and Ypres are not in commission, and are laid up in reserve). The Armentieres is very busy as a fisheries patrol vessel, training vessel, hydrographic survey ship, etc.

 

This information is pretty accurate for the period 1931 to 1937.
