Irving Shipbuilding Wins Lion's Share of Historic Contract

Halifax's Irving Shipbuilding is getting the $25 billion contract to build 21 Canadian combat ships and Vancouver's Seaspan Marine has been awarded an $8 billion contract for 7 non-combat vessels, the federal government announced, which is the manifestation of the Canadian government's National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy (NSPS), designed to envigorate the country's shipbuilding industrial base and manufacture a fleet of vessels to protect the country vital interests in the quickly melting Arctic region.
