Shipbuilding projects to equip the Royal Canadian Navy and the Canadian Coast Guard

Under the National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS), we formed partnerships with 3 Canadian shipyards, Irving Shipbuilding Inc., Seaspan Vancouver Shipyards and Chantier Davie Canada Inc., to renew Canada’s federal fleet of combat and non-combat vessels.

Under the second and third pillars of the strategy, opportunities are available for Canadian shipyards and businesses across the country for small ship construction, repair, refit and maintenance.

Learn about the status of current and upcoming projects under the NSS.
