NAVY AND COAST GUARD DAY
Navy and Coast Guard Day is a non-partisan event held annually on Parliament Hill to draw attention to the following key issues:
- Maritime Security – The Navy League of Canada urges the government to invest in our national marine security enforcement capability to protect Canada’s oceans, ports, and inland seaways.
- Naval Capabilities – The Navy League of Canada calls upon the government to immediately undertake to procure a minimum of twenty new surface warships at a nominal rate of one per year over a 20-year period.
- National Shipbuilding Plan – The Navy League of Canada calls upon the government to develop and implement a National Shipbuilding Strategy with a 20-year Ongoing Procurement Plan and stable annual funding.
Navy and Coast Guard Day is generously supported by our private sector sponsors.
