Repair, maintenance and refit – Business as usualWhat is the NSPS?
The Government has recognized a once-in-a-generation opportunity to leverage its fleet renewal investment to foster a stronger, more sustainable Canadian marine industry.
The Canadian Association of Defence and Security Industries (CADSI) has estimated that the renewal of the federal fleet will support 15,000 jobs annually in communities across Canada over the next 30 years. (Sovereignty, Security and Prosperity – Government Ships, May 2009)
Canada’s marine industries are broader than the ship construction that occurs in shipyards and involves many hundreds of Canadian companies, most of them small and medium enterprises.
The Industrial and Regional Benefits Policy will ensure that the full value of the resulting contracts (both shipyard and non-shipyard related work) is leveraged back into the Canadian economy.
