Across Seaspan Shipyards we are proud to employ a diverse and talented group of individuals. At Vancouver Shipyards, where our National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS)-related work is underway, we provide well-paid jobs to hundreds of professionals and skilled tradespeople.
With work stretching well into the next decade, employment opportunities will continue to grow as we meet our commitments to the Government of Canada. In all, it is expected that our work will help to create and sustain an annual average of over 2,300 Canadian jobs over the first decade of the program.
In addition to current employment opportunities, Seaspan Shipyards is investing millions in our future employees. This includes support for shipbuilding education initiatives at British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT), Camosun College, and the University of British Columbia. These investments are helping to attract the next generation of shipbuilders, and include focused efforts to generate participation from women and First Nations peoples.
- BCIT and the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation Open Arms Project which will help to increase the number of First Nations able to access training by approximately 100 individuals over the next few years.
- Support for Camosun College’s new $35M trades complex which will include increased opportunities for women to participate in the trades.
- Partnerships with the Aboriginal Community Career Employment Services Society (ACCESS), Coast Salish Employment and Training Society (CSETS) and First Nations Employment Society (FNES) to jointly develop and deliver quality training and employment opportunities in the shipbuilding industry for First Nations peoples living in Vancouver and on Vancouver Island.
