HMCS Toronto

It is rare to see a Canadian frigate in the Novadock floating drydock at Halifax Shipyard. The HMC Dockyard is normally able to drydock its own ships on its synchrolift for minor work, and only major refits occur at the Shipyard. The ongoing FELEX program is currently occupying the graving dock at the Shipyard, and the yard currently has only one other drydock.
HMCS Toronto is on the Novadock for some minor work, but which may require some extra TLC. The ship is due to depart in the New Year for an extended overseas assignment and the RCN opted to go with the Shipyard for the work.
The ship is berthed in the south end of the dock, so that her props and rudders are easliy accessed from the land, and so it is only the ship's bow that is visible from the shore at pier 9.
