Ottawa delivers on multimillion dollar commitment to NB Naval Centre

Ottawa is making good on its $10 million commitment to the New Brunswick Naval Centre in Bas-Caraquet.

A 300 ton ship lift arrived at the centre in December and its installation is expected to get underway sometime this week, weather permitting.

The remainder of the funds will be used to renovate the facility's U-shaped dock and dry dock.

Other projects include paving and improvements to the centre's fire protection system.
