What are we building?

Seaspan’s Vancouver Shipyards has been selected under the Government of Canada’s National Shipbuilding Strategy to be Canada’s West Coast Centre of Excellence and long-term partner for the building of Canada’s Non-Combat vessels. The multi-billion dollar Non-Combat program will create stable work over the next decade and beyond, and see the construction of up to 17 ships to start.
