About Canadian National Shipbuilding Strategy
The National Shipbuilding Strategy has been tasked with meeting the Federal fleet renewal needs for both the Department of National Defence (DND) and Canadian Coast Guard (CCG). The program involves four Government departments: DND, Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO), Industry Canada (IC) and Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC).
The Strategy will span 30 years and has three components- large ship construction, small ship construction and ship repair, maintenance and refit.
The large ship construction part of the Strategy is estimated at $36.6bn, and will involve building Combat vessels, including the Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ships (AOPS) and Canadian Surface Combatants (CSC). Non-Combat vessels will also be built, including the Offshore Fisheries Science Vessels (OFSV), Offshore Oceanographic Science Vessel (OOSV), Joint Support Ships (JSS), Polar Icebreaker (PI), Medium Endurance Multi-Tasked Vessels (MEMTV) and Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPV).
The smaller ship construction part of the strategy is estimated at $2bn, with the repair, maintenance and refit of all ships being between $500-600m per year.
