Update 2019 | Defence Investment Plan

1.1 Defence Investment Plan

The Defence Investment Plan will be published every 3 years, following approval of a technical Investment Plan by the Treasury Board. The purpose of Investment Plan annual updates is to inform on the progress in delivering capital investments that will enhance the Forces’ capabilities and capacity.

Maritime Helicopter Replacement

The Maritime Helicopter Replacement project includes the delivery of 28 state-of-the-art, combat-capable CH-148 Cyclone helicopters. The Cyclone is a world-class maritime helicopter that is capable of a full range of operations, including anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, search and rescue, and utility missions.

In January 2019, the Cyclone completed its first operational deployment: it was embarked in HMCS Ville de Québec for Operation REASSURANCE. In early 2019, the Royal Canadian Air Force took delivery of the 16th and 17th Cyclones. Together, the Royal Canadian Air Force and the Royal Canadian Navy continue to work closely with our NATO Allies and international partners to enhance maritime security by delivering effects on, above, and below the sea.
