Member's Statement on Genoa Design International

Mr. Speaker, we’re very proud that Newfoundland and Labrador’s Genoa Design is working with Seaspan of Vancouver, a major National Shipbuilding Strategy Partner, and is a key component of Seaspan’s Polar Icebreaker team along with Heddle Shipyards of Ontario.

This Pan-Canadian Team offers design and fabrication opportunities from coast to coast, supporting thousands of jobs across the country over the multi-year life of the program.

Our world class innovation and arctic marine expertise is well known and respected.

And Genoa and Newfoundland and Labrador can provide unmatched value to the next Polar Icebreaker.

We’ve just seen the overwhelming confidence shown our technology sector with the sale of Verafin.

The sector is strong and builds on a history of leadership in cold ocean technology, R & D and marine operations, including offshore oil development.

Genoa is another gem in our province and we are delighted to see them as a part of the National Shipbuilding Strategy and urge government to support them and Seaspan in their bid.
