Canada has a long maritime tradition and is the headquarters of some of the best known marine engineering offices that have an strong influence when deciding the equipment to install in a new ship. The Canadian Government has recently assigned a new program of new buildings for both the Canadian Navy and research vessels to two Canadian Shipyards.
