Halifax Shipyard Land Level Expansion – Public Comments Invited

June 30, 2022 – The Halifax Port Authority must determine whether the proposed Halifax Shipyard Land Level Expansion, located in Halifax, NS is likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects. To help inform this determination, Irving Shipbuliding is inviting comments from the public respecting that determination. All comments received will be shared with the Halifax Port Authority and considered public. For more information, individuals should consult the Privacy Notice on the Registry website.


The Proposed Project

Irving Shipbuilding (ISI) is proposing to expand and modify site and facilities at the Halifax Shipyard. The Halifax Shipyard site expansion will include dredging, marine structures and rock infill behind the structure creating approximately 13 acres of additional yard space. The newly expanded area will not extend farther into the channel than the limits of the floating dry dock that was previously located at Halifax Shipyard. This project will increase the capacity of the shipyard and support the fabrication, launching, and maintenance of the Canadian Surface Combatant (CSC) vessels, which are being developed under the National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS).
