Irving Shipbuilding held a keel-laying ceremony at its Halifax Shipyard for the future HMCS Max Bernays on Wednesday, December 5.
The 103-metre vessel is the third Harry DeWolf-class Arctic Offshore and Patrol Ship (AOPS) being built for the Royal Canadian Navy.
The future Max Bernays will be the first AOPS to be assigned to Maritime Forces Pacific.
The vessel honours Chief Petty Officer Max Leopold Bernays, a Royal Canadian Navy sailor who was decorated for valour during World War II.
