Vessels, Ships, Air Cushion Vehicles and Helicopters
Our iconic red and white vessels, air cushion vehicles and helicopters are a nationally recognized symbol of safety on Canada’s oceans, lakes and waterways and perform a variety of roles in support of the Coast Guard’s mandate, including:
- Supporting the safe and efficient movement of ships;
- Search and rescue operations;
- Environmental response; and
- Supporting federal government partners to support science, sovereignty and security programs.
Recent InvestmentsAs a result of specific investments made by the Government of Canada against the fleet – and other shore-based assets – over the past few years, Coast Guard is developing a detailed 3-year asset maintenance plan to describe improvements in asset condition, asset management capacity, systems and processes which will be included in the department’s Investment Plan in 2020.
