Marine Sector Skills Gap Analysis Study

Canadian Shipowners Association

CPCS assessed the availability of trained seafarers in key trades facing shortages in the Canadian marine sector, particularly ship navigation officers and deck officers. The study involved analyzing data and consulting shipowners, training colleges, industry associations, unions and recruitment organizations to assess the extent and reasons for shortages. CPCS then provided short- and long-term recommendations to the Canadian Shipowners Association to address future labour gaps.
