But this contract is a result of Irving Shipbuilding selecting BAE Systems to supply its Mk 38 25mm Gun for each Arctic and Offshore Patrol Ship being built for the Royal Canadian Navy at Halifax Shipyard, and Canada’s Industrial and Technological Benefits (ITB) program, which ensures 100% of the value of significant defence contracts like those under the National Shipbuilding Strategy is spent in Canada.
