SS Maisonneuve Park Model
The SS Maisonneuve Park was one of some 400 merchant ships built in Canada as part of the war effort.
Of this total, 43 were of the same general design as the Maisonneuve Park. With a few exceptions, merchant ships built in Canada for Canadian service were named after Canadian parks, while those built for British service were named after Canadian forts. Owned by the Park Steamship Company, part of the Canadian government's Department of Munitions and Supply, the "Park Ships" were operated by Canadian steamship companies. Completed in September 1945, the Maisonneuve Park subsequently served with Canadian National Steamships.
