Shipbuilding across Canadian communities
In 2020, the Government of Canada awarded approximately $3.5 billion in new contracts to Canadian companies under the National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS), including $132.1 million that went to small and medium-sized businesses with fewer than 250 full-time employees.
