Government takes final step before building Joint Support Ships with $230M Seaspan Contract

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.
