Canadian Dredge & Dock, Kingston ON

Most recent update:  February 7, 2015.


Canadian Dredge & Dock Co., Ltd., was organized in 1915, for the purpose of building the fourth Welland Canal: its facilities included a shipyard which maintained the company's large fleet of tugs and dredges.  At the outset of WWII, the Government tasked them with building a variety of small craft and after the war, they returned to being primarily a repair yard but continued as a boatbuilder on a small scale.  The yard, which closed in 1999, was located on Wellington Street, where the Kingston Marina is now.  This table appears to be seriously incomplete: please send any additions and/or corrections to timcolton@aol.com
