No, not really. There were/are Provincial police forces but were never Provincial "national guards" under the command of Premiers and Provincial Legislatures.
B.C. bought their own submarine navy at the very beginning of WW I but the Kippers took them away pretty damned quick and left a couple of rusting hulks behind in Esquimalt in return.
