Index to Canadian shipbuilders and boatbuilders

This table lists about 125 Canadian shipbuilders and boatbuilders which have their construction records documented on a table in this data base, in alphabetical order.  Click on a shipyard's name to go directly to its construction record.  Former and alternative names are included, although I may have missed some.  Note that the many small shipyards which do not have their own tables are not included here. please send comments to
