Canada purchased F-101s in two batches. The Royal Canadian Air Force purchased 56 F-101B and 10 F-101F aircraft from the United States in 1961. The surviving first batch CF-101s were exchanged in 1970 – 72 for 56 lower time USAF F-101B and 10 F-101F aircraft. These second batch aircraft served as front line interceptors for the Canadian Armed Forces until the end of 1984. Additionally, one further F-101 (a unique electronic warfare conversion) was leased to Canada from 1982 to 1987. Canadian Voodoo operations finally concluded in April 1987.

The objective of this page is to list any Voodoo that served in Canada that still exists in some substantial form. Additional information, updates, photographs, comments and anecdotes about Canadian Voodoos would be welcome.

- Voodoos USAF 59-0438/RCAF 17438 and USAF 59-0478/RCAF 17478, formerly on display in Panama City, Florida, were dumped in the Gulf of Mexico in 2014 as the basis for artificial reefs.
- The cockpit of Voodoo 59-0455/RCAF 17455 was under restoration in Bavaria, Germany. It was subsequently moved to Switzerland in 2010. Its ultimate fate is unknown.
- Voodoos CAF 101014, 101048, 101050 and 101059, formerly derelict at CFB Bagotville, were scrapped in 2018.
- Voodoo CAF 101052, formerly at the Canadian Museum of Flight, Langley, British Columbia, is believed to have been scrapped about 1998.
- A Voodoo marked “57-0332”, formerly on display at Tyndall AFB, Florida and presumed to be CAF 101024 was actually USAF 58-0332. This aircraft is now at the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum, McMinville, Oregon. The genuine CAF 101024 was apparently scrapped in the Ottawa area in 1993.
Additionally, some other CF-101s may still be extant as hulks or range targets. Any information would be appreciated.
