On February 28, 2017 I had the pleasure of welcoming Minister the Honourable Judy Foote, Minister of Public Services and Procurement, the Honourable Harjit Sajjan, Minister of National Defence, and the Honourable Jody Wilson-Raybould, Minister of Justice to North Vancouver as they announced a $230 million contract with Seaspan Vancouver Shipyards. that will help develop and finalize the design of the Navy’s Joint Support Ship (JSS). Construction is scheduled to begin in 2018.
Seaspan is rightfully celebrated for their world class design, construction, maintenance and repair of a wide array of vessels put to work here in Canada and abroad.
Further, they have long been a leader on the North Shore by supporting thousands of good middle class jobs and by continuing to make corporate responsibility a top priority with invaluable humanitarian contributions to our community.
