Quebec City, March 26, 2024 - GBV Avocats proudly acknowledges the signing of Chantier Davie’s new contract for the design of six new modern icebreakers for the Canadian Coast Guard.

Led by Me Charles-Francis Roy and Me Marc-André Gravel, our team worked intensively in close collaboration with Chantier Davie's team to complete the negotiations involving the Canadian authorities, with a view to finalizing this NSS launch contract for the Lévis-based company. Since 2019, the GBV team has been intricately involved in every facet of Chantier Davie's engagement in the NSS, culminating in the finalization of this contract.

La décision de la Cour résulte d'un recours initié en février 2022 par les Conseils d'Essipit et de Pekuakamiulnuatsh, qui soutenaient que le Québec n'avait pas respecté son obligation constitutionnelle de les consulter en lien avec l'élaboration de la Stratégie. La Cour a donné raison aux Premières Nations, a constaté les manquements du Québec et a ordonné que ce soit mis en place un processus distinct de consultation au plus tard le 30 septembre 2024.

Dirigée par Me Robert Gagné Jr et Me Coralie Martineau, notre équipe a travaillé de concert avec des clientes de la plus haute qualité dans une cause phare aux facettes multiples.
