GOVERNMENT OF CANADA INVESTS $34.4 MILLION IN
CANADA'S MILITARY WITH LONDON'S GENERAL DYNAMICS

London, Ontario – The Honourable Rona Ambrose, Minister of Public Works and Government Services and the Minister for Status of Women, and the Honourable Peter MacKay, Minister of National Defence, today announced that the Government of Canada has awarded a contract to General Dynamics Land Systems – Canada of London, Ontario, for the Light Armoured Vehicle (LAV) III Upgrade Project.

“This announcement reinforces the importance of investing in our security and defence industry as it not only benefits the Canadian military, but also supports the economy and creates jobs for Canadians,” said Minister Ambrose. “By choosing GDLS – Canada for this project, we are benefiting from the high-tech engineering expertise we have right here in London and supporting local businesses.”

“The renewal of the Canadian Forces’ core equipment is a priority for our Government and a key commitment of our Canada First Defence Strategy,” said Minister MacKay. “This updated and improved technology will make the vehicles safer for our men and women in uniform and it gives them the tools and protection they need to succeed in their jobs.”

LAV III vehicles are state-of-the-art combat vehicles used to transport infantry on the battlefield while providing defensive protection and firepower. The LAV III Upgrade Project involves upgrading 550 vehicles, with the option to upgrade an additional 80 vehicles, to extend the fleet’s life span to 2035.

The contract, worth $34.4 million, will provide engineering and design work for the LAV III Upgrade Project Definition Phase. This work is necessary to increase the safety of Canadian Forces members travelling on board the LAV III.
