BMT Awarded RCN Service Contract Valued at $77.8M

Operation PROJECTION 18

The Government is making new investments to ensure Canada’s Navy is capable of meeting the anticipated defence and security challenges of the coming decades.

BMT Canada Ltd. will provide engineering, logistics, management, and support services to the Royal Canadian Navy’s fleet for an initial value of $77.8 million for five years. It will support up to 263 jobs for its duration.

The Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) must continually adapt to emerging threats in order to accomplish its missions. This service contract will assist the RCN in meeting this mandate. BMT Canada Ltd. is contracted to provide a wide variety of work such as standards development and logistics services for equipment sustainment.

This contract is one of the first to have been awarded through an improved contract approval process, resulting in accelerated implementation. It will pave the way for other contracts to go through this new streamlined process and, as a result, improve how we acquire services for the Canadian Armed Forces.

“Our defence policy, Strong, Secure, Engaged, promised an agile, multi-purpose Navy, and we are delivering on this commitment. This support contract increases our flexibility to provide essential services to our Royal Canadian Navy fleet, increasing its flexibility to fulfill its missions and deploy on short notice.” The Honourable Harjit S. Sajjan, Minister of National Defence

“This is an important contract that will support the work of the Royal Canadian Navy by ensuring that the women and men in uniform continue to operate reliable vessels. It will also sustain more than 260 jobs across Canada for years to come.” Steve MacKinnon, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Public Services and Procurement and Accessibility
