Last September in Les Méchins, Steven Blaney, the Member of Parliament for Lévis-Bellechasse, announced on behalf of the Honourable Gail Shea, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans Canada, the awarding of a $6.8-million contract to Groupe Maritime Verreault inc. This funding will provide assistance to Quebec’s shipbuilding industry and economic sector.

The CCGS Tracy, a Canadian Coast Guard vessel built in 1968, will undergo a major refit which will extend her service life by another 10 years.

The CCGS Tracy is a medium-endurance buoy tender with a shallow draught that measures 55.32 metres in length. It has some icebreaking capability and can launch and recover fast response crafts. It is primarily used for the maintenance of aids to navigation, icebreaking, flood control and environmental response.

This investment is part of the $175 million announced under Canada’s Economic Action Plan earmarked for the Canadian Coast Guard.
