The repairs to Chicoutimi are expected to cost at least $20 million.
Right now, just one of Canada's four submarines is able to go to sea. The others are being brought up to Canadian navy standards.
HMCS Windsor is patrolling the Atlantic coast. Last week, Windsor had what the navy calls an "electrical incident" that caused the crew to go to emergency stations.
As for Chicoutimi, the repairs are expected to take another two years to complete.
