Submarine Fleet Status

The Victoria-class submarine fleet continues to progress towards a steady state where three of four submarines will be available for operations.

This will include a high-readiness submarine available on both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, HMCS Windsor and HMCS Victoria respectively, with a third submarine, HMCS Chicoutimi, available at standard readiness.
