On October 19, 2011, the NSPS Secretariat announced the two Canadian shipyards that were selected to rebuild the Canadian fleets. Irving Shipbuilding Inc. was selected to build the combat vessels while Vancouver Shipyards Co. Ltd. will build the non-combat vessels. On February 13 and 14, 2012, Umbrella Agreements were signed with the shipyards to define the long-term working relationships and administrative arrangements under which the government will negotiate fair and reasonable individual contracts. Negotiations are now under way with the shipyards for the lead project in each work package: National Defence’s Arctic Offshore Patrol Ships in the combat package and the science vessels for the Canadian Coast Guard in the non-combat package.
