Seaspan - North Vancouver

More often than not, the apprentices are coming to Seaspan and actually teaching us about the work and our equipment. That is a win for the employer and for the employee it's a start of a new career.

Seaspan has forged a solid reputation for the design, construction, maintenance, and repair of all types of vessels. The yard's facilities include a major steel forming shop, a large fabrication and assembly hall, a totally enclosed paint facility, and a SyncroLift capable of lifting vessels up to 1200 tonnes.

Seaspan is one of the largest employer sponsors in the marine sector! After a tour of Seaspan's impressive facilities, we took some time to chat with Jonathan, CEO of Seaspan. Jonathan gives us an in-depth analysis of what it means to be an employer sponsor and how to start your career as an apprentice.
