DESIGNATED OFFICIAL

 

Located in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, Irving Shipbuilding has a proud history as Canada’s shipbuilder. A proud member of the J.D. Irving, Limited family of companies, we have been building quality vessels and fabricated modules for more than 50 years, and our Halifax Shipyard has been at the forefront of Canadian shipbuilding for 130 years.

This year, we will deliver the lead Arctic and Offshore Patrol Ship, the largest Navy ship built in Canada in 50 years. And we’re just getting started.

Our workforce of over 2,000 will grow to more than 2,800 at peak construction of the Canadian Surface Combatants.
