Tankers Built in Canada Since WWII

Most recent update: August 15, 2017.


Since the end of World War II, Canadian shipyards have built 71 tankers, all product/chemical carriers: the last of these was delivered in 1982 and none are in Canadian-flag service today, although several are still operating under foreign flags.  If anyone has any corrections or additions to this table, please send them to timcolton@aol.com
