Forillon Shipyard in Gaspé, Quebec, has been selected to build the Canadian Coast Guard’s first hybrid vessel, a nearshore fishery research vessel designed to reduce carbon emissions in line with Canada’s climate change commitments for 2030 and 2050. This project demonstrates the company’s steady growth and job creation. To maintain its quality standards for current and future projects, Forillon Shipyard plans to expand its team by recruiting specialists, front-line employees, engineers, welders, project managers, administrative staff, and production staff. The decision to award the contract was based on various criteria, including the company’s experience, shipyard facilities, past experience with similar projects, and the strength of its team.
