For Immediate Release
December 10, 2014 — Ottawa, Ontario — Public Works and Government Services Canada
The National Fighter Procurement Secretariat today released the 2014 National Defence Annual Update on the life-cycle cost estimates for the F-35, the independent review of the Annual Update, and the latest report on Canadian industrial participation in the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Program. These reports were also tabled in Parliament.
The Secretariat also fulfilled its commitments under the Seven-Point Plan and is demonstrating transparency in releasing all unclassified reports.
No decision has been made on the replacement of Canada’s fighter fleet. To ensure that Canada retains a fighter capability during a transition to a new fleet, National Defence has extended the life expectancy of the CF-18s to 2025.
For more information, please visit the National Fighter Procurement Secretariat website.
All reports are available on the National Fighter Procurement Secretariat website.
