Quebec has a population of 8.5 million and a GDP similar in size to Chile. The Chilean Navy has 26,000 personnel including Marines and has 4 SSKs (two Type 209s from the 1980s and two Scorpenes from the 2000s) and eight old frigates, all from the 1980s and 1990s. These Quebecois would be lucky to have a navy that large considering the cost of manpower. A realistic goal would be for 4 SSKs and 4 modern frigates, although the naval geography in the Gulf of St. Lawrence would place more emphasis on fast attack craft and small ships no larger than the Sa'ar 4.5. MPAs would be very important, but Quebec won't have the money for more than a few modern ones, so the fleet is likely to be mostly P-3 Orions. Without frigates, you can also get rid of ASW helicopters. Any ideas of anything nuclear can be tossed immediately. OPVs are big, slow targets that have absolutely no business being built by such cash-strapped countries in places where land-based tactical aircraft are the dominant naval weapon.
