The Canadian Surface Combatant recently selected the final design and design team for the construction of their ships, expected to begin in the early 2020s.

Like the frigates they will eventually replace, these ships will form the backbone of Canada’s naval fleet.

The occasion was marked by a ministerial event in Halifax at the Irving Shipyard. Work now begins on modifications to the Royal Canadian Navy’s specific needs, with first delivery expected in the mid-2020s.

These highly adaptable ships will be ready to change missions quickly and respond to evolving and emerging threats.
