Skilled Trades

For more than a century, we have relied on skilled tradespeople to help us lead the marine industry on Canada’s West Coast. Now, we must expand our workforce even further to build new icebreakers, Coast Guard vessels, and support ships for the next 30 years and beyond.

Now is the time to come to Seaspan and apply your skills to making something important, and something that lasts. We need people from all trades to join our team and work with us to build, repair, and refit vessels of all sizes at our Vancouver Shipyards, Victoria Shipyards, and Vancouver Drydock.

The Seaspan Commitment

We have built our success in the marine industry on three foundations: experience, technology, and expertise. We need talented people who are committed to ensuring that we sustain our leadership in quality, efficiency and continuous improvement. In return, we offer a progressive and respectful work environment in Canada’s most beautiful region, ongoing investment in our staff and infrastructure, and a fulfilling career in an industry that creates a legacy.
