Halifax Shipyard’s facility modernization and the building of six Arctic and Offshore Patrol Ships (AOPS) is expected to be boost economic activity across Canada by $3.42 billion between 2013 and 2022, according to a Conference Board of Canada report.
The report, The Economic Impact of Canada’s Arctic and Offshore Patrol Ship Program, assesses the economic impacts across Canada of the Halifax Shipyard’s facilities modernization and construction of six AOPS as part of the National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS).
I support building ships in Halifax that support a stronger economy and industry here and in communities across Canada.
