True and I didn't miss it. However, due to the risk of war and the restarting cold war, I simply considered that the Canadian navy chose to keep their Oberon (may be in reserve). UK keeps it's Upholder but simply builds four more for the Canadian navy.

Built 1995 between 1997
HMCS Kingston (MM 700)
HMCS Glace Bay (MM 701)
HMCS Nanaimo (MM 702)
HMCS Edmonton (MM 703)
HMCS Shawinigan (MM 704)

Rushed into Service 1997 between 1998
HMCS Whitehorse (MM 705)
HMCS Yellowknife (MM 706)
HMCS Goose Bay (MM 707)
HMCS Moncton (MM 708)

Planned but not constructed
HMCS Saskatoon (MM 709)
HMCS Brandon (MM 710)
HMCS Summerside (MM 711)
I didn't miss that one too but my own timeline put the beginning of the war in 2000 (this explains that). I forgot to put a comment for v1.0 and v2.2. You vision is perfectly good except that the program could be accelerated.

I noticed but I was leasy.

I didn't miss that too. I simply considered that they effecitvely underwent extended refit while they were scrapped or sold IRL. A war is coming, every ship is needed and you do with what you have.

Didn't miss that too. I used this for all the Restigouche.

HMCS Thunder (MCB 153)
HMCS Fundy (MCB 159)
HMCS Chignecto (MCB 160)
HMCS Cowichan (MCB 162)
HMCS Chaleur (MCB 164)
HMCS Miramichi (MCB 163)
I noticed that too, they are simply turned back to what they were. Again you do with what you have. However, it is only a point of view.

Missed that one too. I didn't have the details. Thanks again

Actually they are not missing really but you are right. I simply chose to list only combat ships, leaving support vessels to the imagination and knowledge of every one.

Thanks for you contribution anyway, I'll change a few things right now.
