Canada’s National Shipbuilding Strategy: 2019 annual report
The National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS) is Canada’s long-term plan to renew the fleets of the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) and the Canadian Coast Guard (CCG). The primary objectives of the NSS are to deliver vessels to the RCN and the CCG, create and maintain employment and generate economic growth for Canada, as well as build a sustainable Canadian marine sector.
This report provides an update on the NSS from January 1 to December 31, 2019. It highlights economic achievements and details progress and challenges against the 3 pillars of the NSS:
- large vessel construction
- small vessel construction
- repair, refit and maintenance work
The report also addresses the key risks facing the NSS, and the mitigation measures put in place to address challenges.
