National Shipbuilding Strategy

The National Shipbuilding Strategy is a long-term project to renew Canada's federal fleet of combat and non-combat vessels. We formed partnerships with two Canadian shipyards to deliver much-needed vessels to the Royal Canadian Navy and the Canadian Coast Guard. The strategy provides economic benefits to Canadians and rebuilds our country’s shipbuilding industry.
