As globalization and geopolitical tensions have impacted international trade and Canada’s economy, it has also changed the way we operate our domestic fleets and terminals on the West Coast.

Over the last 40 years the maritime industry in BC has been undergoing a progressive, major transformation. Over the past 100 years, forestry in BC was king and its existence was the lifeblood of the west coast marine industry.

Today, servicing major new coastal energy projects and the expanded facilities in BC ports has led to major investment in highly advanced vessels and the need for highly trained and qualified mariners. This has opened doors to develop the modern mariner, yet comes at a time of local and worldwide shortages of qualified seafarers.

In our second event in the series “Evolution of the Pacific Gateway: Facing the Challenges of a New Era” we will discuss the specific challenges faced by the marine industry in attracting and retaining a diverse and skilled workforce when opportunities for workers in all sectors seem infinite.


The Pacific Chapter (CILTNA) is pleased to invite you to a Reception/Presentation featuring:


Speakers:  Paul Hilder, President, Council of Marine Carriers (CMC)

Alex Ruben, Executive Director, Association of British Columbia Marine Industries (ABCMI) BC Ferries and BC Coast Pilots TBA
