Canadian Press -  The president of Irving Shipbuilding says planners, estimators and engineers are now being hired as part of the shipbuilding procurement project.

Kevin McCoy says about 200 people are working on the design of the Arctic offshore patrol ships, with about 60 per cent of those in Canada and the remainder in Denmark.

McCoy says he expects that number to rise to 500 in the spring with the construction of a facility at the shipyard.

Ottawa announced yesterday that it has authorized an engineering design phase and a proposal that allows the shipyard to prepare a plan to build the vessels.
