The man's identity hasn't been released because charges are pending.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) said the man crashed his truck through a gate protecting the exclusive Rideau Hall grounds early Thursday morning and then walked to a greenhouse on the property "where he was rapidly contained by RCMP members who were on patrol in the area".
The man made it about 120 metres along a footpath in the truck before it became disabled and he abandoned it there, Duheme said.
The Forces will review Hurren's status once the RCMP's investigation and legal proceedings are finished, the statement says, and his actions may be subject to military discipline as well.
The man had a bail hearing on Friday and was remanded in custody until July 17.
"Our members relied on their training and instinct to continue, speaking with the suspect until 8:30 a.m., at which point he was apprehended into custody without incident", said RCMP Deputy Commissioner Michael Duheme.
Duheme said the Commissionaires noticed the suspect carrying what appeared to be a firearm, and notified the RCMP. Neither the Governor General nor the prime minister and his family were home at the time Hurren was on the property.
Corey Hurren, 46, who grew up a farm boy in rural Manitoba, is a serving member of the Canadian Armed Forces, the military confirmed.
