Since 1895, the Navy League of Canada has supported the prosperity of Canadaâ€™s agricultural, industrial, and business sectors by encouraging dependable marine transportation and port facilities, and maritime safety and protection. We have also worked to ensure that Canadaâ€™s Navy remains relevant, sustainable, ready and able.
CANADA IS A MARITIME NATION
The health of Canadaâ€™s economy depends on water transportation. One-third of our country’s gross domestic product is transported by water and, excluding U.S. exports and imports, 97% of our trade is transported by ship.
Water has become a major factor in relations with other countries both as a facility and as a resource/commodity.
The Navy League of Canada maintains an abiding interest in offshore industries, the marine environment, shipbuilding, transportation by water, use of the maritime regions for pleasure and tourism, a strong and ready Coast Guard and a combat-capable Navy to protect and watch over our interests.
