Marine Industry Supply Chains of Canadian Shipyards in the Era of the National Shipbuilding Strategy

The Canadian Marine Industries and Shipbuilding Association in collaboration with the Royal United Services Institute of Nova Scotia extends an invitation to members of the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers to hear video-conference presentations Wednesday, 14 October, titled “Marine Industry Supply Chains of Canadian Shipyards in the Era of the National Shipbuilding Strategy.”

The esteemed presenters are:

Steven Christianson, Vice President Supply Chain Management, Seaspan Shipyards (https://www.seaspan.com/corporate-team/steven-christiansen);

Lindsey Kettel, Executive Vice President, Chantier Davie Canada (https://www.davie.ca/management/2768/);

Philippe Flébus, Director Procurement & Infrastructure, Ocean Group (https://www.linkedin.com/in/philippeflebus/);

 

Canadian Shipyards have a significant impact for the national and local economies through their supply chains.  These three experts share 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.

 

The event will start at 1 pm Ottawa time EST (2:30 pm St John’s, 2 pm Halifax, noon Winnipeg, 11 am Calgary, 10 am Victoria), Wednesday, 14 October, then be followed by Q&A and finish by 3 pm Ottawa time.
