Earlier this year Vancouver Shipyards was awarded a multi-billion dollar contract to build non-combat vessels under the Canadian Governments National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy. In preparation for vessel construction VSY is spending in excess of 200 million dollars on upgrades to its existing facilities. Gateway Infrastructure Group is playing a major role in the upgrade program with four contracts awarded to date worth approximately 18.0 million dollars. GIG is one of a number of Tsleil-Waututh First Nation partner companies working on the project and is by far the leader in that regard accounting for almost 33% of all First Nations participation on the project.
