Seaspan has begun construction of the Royal Canadian Navy’s (RCN) future Joint Support Ships (JSS) at its Vancouver shipyard, the Canadian Department of National Defence announced on 15 June.

The two JSS will replace the RCN’s former auxiliary oiler replenishment vessels. The first JSS will be delivered in year 2022-23 and the second in year 2023-24.

The JSS will support both international and domestic operations of the Canadian armed forces including defence and humanitarian missions by delivering fuel and other vital supplies to vessels at sea. The ships will also offer medical and dental services and provide facilities for helicopters and equipment repair.
