September 2019 - The federal government launched the National Shipbuilding Strategy in July 2019. It then proceeded to announce contracts in key regions. Announcements to invest in shipbuilding projects across the country followed in mid July and mid August as part of a series of pre-election announcements. Some contracts remain to be granted. This promise is rated kept in part because the National Shipbuilding strategy and investments have come at the end of the mandate; however, the promise suggested that this would be a top priority back in 2015.
