The CCGS Cap Perce is one of the Canadian Coast Guard's 36 Cape class motor life boat.[1] She was scheduled to be stationed at a new Coast Guard station in Kegaska, Quebec, on the Gulf of St Lawrence. Like her sister ships she will be staffed by a crew of four, two of whom will be Search and Rescue technicians.

According to Gail Shea, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans Canada:[1] "Given the intensive commercial fishing activities and the pleasure boat and ship traffic that characterize the area, Kegaska is a strategic location for a Canadian Coast Guard lifeboat station. Furthermore, this will allow us to consolidate our coverage in this critical sector of the Gulf of St. Lawrence."
