The Canadian Coast Guard is a national institution that provides important maritime programs and services to Canadians. The Coast Guard fleet, Canada's strong and visible presence, patrols the world's longest coastline, the largest freshwater system and the longest inland waterway. The professional and dedicated people who are committed to their jobs live by the motto Safety First, Service Always. They are the Fleet's core strength.

Our challenges in the coming years will be to:

  • Satisfy increasing and evolving service demands;
  • Attract and retain the best personnel; and
  • Effectively manage our ageing fleet and oversee the construction of new vessels.

During 2007-2008, Fleet continued its efforts to improve planning and budgeting processes in the context of its Operational Readiness Framework. We are now better positioned to satisfy current needs and future challenges that our changing and complex environment presents.

Fleet is proud to be part of the national institution that is the CCG and we look forward to meeting and exceeding clients' needs and expectations in the years to come. We recognize that our role as Canada's civilian maritime service provider has never been more important, or more demanding. Again, we would like to stress the importance of our people, ashore and afloat, who dedicate themselves to serving our clients and Canadians.
