Is there an incentive from Canadian government to have ships built in Canada?

Not so far as I am aware,if there were we might just see a few built here,me thinks only enough are built to keep a cadre of capability,and thats getting pretty long in the tooth.Also,since Atlantic Towing has the contract for this project and the company which owns that firm also owns the shipyard (Halifax Shpyrd) where it was built,it made a great deal of sense to them to build their own vessel.(My joke)(Wave) Rgds,Ken
