Parks Canada to speed up conservation of shipwrecks from failed Arctic expedition

The Canadian government has proposed $15 million over three years to accelerate archaeological and conservation work for the wrecks of HMS Erebus and HMS Terror from the legendary and ill-fated Franklin Expedition of 1845.

The proposed investment — about $12 million USD — was announced Monday as part of Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland’s 2021 budget and would start flowing for the 2021-2022 fiscal year.
