Renewing the Marine Training Program

Through the Oceans Protection Plan, Transport Canada has partnered with schools across Canada to deliver training to underrepresented groups in the marine sector, such as women, Indigenous Peoples, Northerners, and Inuit. Through advanced training and exercises delivered through virtual and in-person courses, the Marine Training Program has graduated over 600 students, sending them to careers in B.C. Ferries, the Canadian Coast Guard, and other areas of the marine industry.

The next phase of the Oceans Protection Plan will expand the Marine Training Program to deliver more training and graduate more women, Indigenous, Northerner and Inuit Peoples across Canada into the marine industry.
