CSC Costs Increase (More)

By David Dunlop, 9 November 2022

The Parliamentary Budget Officer (PBO) Yves Giroux has stated that costs for the Canadian Surface Combatant (CSC) program have increased (again). The PBO recently reported on cost increases for the program of around 9% up from $77B to $84B as of 28 October 2022 thanks to delays and inflation. These figures have so far not been disputed by the government. See “Estimated cost of warship fleet rises to $84B thanks to delays, inflation: PBO”. See also a commentary by Roger Cyr in National Post, “$84B plan to replace Canada's warships is 'ludicrous': Buy less costly warships that won’t take 26 years to acquire."
