The CCGS Griffon, which performs crucial duties such as light icebreaking and buoy-tending mainly in the Great Lakes and Atlantic Canada, will also support emergency operations. This contract, part of the National Shipbuilding Strategy, aims to maintain a reliable fleet while sustaining up to 50 skilled jobs.
