Economic Impacts

The National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS) is the most significant shipbuilding program in recent Canadian history. The end result will not simply be high-quality ships that are designed and built in Canada, by Canadians, but also a lasting economic legacy that will help to revitalize the historic shipbuilding industry. With sustained work, there will be the opportunity to develop talent and expertise both at Seaspan Shipyards and across our supply chain.

Seaspan Shipyards’ work on the NSS will have an impressive overall impact on the economy. It will help to:

  • Generate billions in economic activity in British Columbia and across Canada.
  • Create thousands of jobs that are long-term and sustainable.
  • Allow for predictable and planned investment in facilities, workers, and processes.
