We Build Careers

Shipbuilding provides high paying careers with excellent benefits, great working conditions, many opportunities to learn on the job and a lifestyle that most only dream of! Our industry offers adventure and challenge with a secure future – careers, not jobs. We encourage growth, recognize established skills, and have an enormous variety of exciting career opportunities with a wide-range of employers. No matter where your interests lie: from working directly on the rigs, to monitoring high tech systems, to rewarding office positions, the choice is yours.

And there has never been a better time to join Canada’s next generation of shipbuilders. Over the next decade alone, BC’s shipbuilding industry will be recruiting well over 4,000 individuals to work with us in both the shipbuilding and ship repair sector and the metal plate and fabrication sector.
