Master Mariners of Canada

Mentoring Women for Seafaring Careers

Vancouver Island Division of The Company of Master Mariners of Canada has a growing membership of which 35% consist of women engaged at sea or within the industry. Our female members include Ship Masters, Maritime Professors, Marine Inspectors, Marine Superintendents, Port Logistic experts and Port Officials. We are announcing a CMMC nationwide initiative to encourage more women mariners and those in the marine industry to join the Company and to further forward our message into the next 50 years of the Company. Our “all female bridge team” is using the Company’s network — consistent with its Mission — to encourage young women to consider pursuing a seafaring career. We are working towards offering a mentoring program for women, by women. We are recruiting all women CMMC members and women in the marine industry from coast-to-coast-to-coast to join us and participate in this exciting initiative. Please send a message to marine@silanorth.com if you would like to join this initiative and the meet the bridge team. “The VI Division Bridge Team”, Amanda, Lori, Cindy, Robbin and Louella.
