On 16 October 2020, RUSI(NS), collaborating with the Canadian Marine Industries and Shipbuilding Association, hosted video-conference presentations by Steven Christiansen, Vice President Supply Chain Management, Seaspan Shipyards; Lindsey Kettel, Executive Vice President, Chantier Davie Canada; and Philippe Flébus, Director Procurement & Infrastructure, Groupe Océan; titled “Marine Industry Supply Chains of Canadian Shipyards in the era of the National Shipbuilding Strategy.”
Canadian Shipyards have a significant impact for the national and local economies through their supply chains. The three experts shared their views on:
• The economic impact of their projects;
• Canadian aspects of their supply chain — size, geographic distribution and number of companies;
• How other companies might get involved in current or future projects; and
• How Canadians yards could position themselves for future national and international opportunities, and how supply chains and governments might assist.
