Update on the Port's COVID-19 response Learn more.

As a part of the Century Agenda, Workforce Development is helping the Port to increase work force training, jobs, and business opportunities for local communities in port-related industries such as maritime, trade, travel and logistics.

Members of the maritime industry have expressed workforce development needs, and Workforce Development is working with the Port Commission and other Port staff to support regional collaboration to meet these needs so the sector can continue to grow. We are supporting research to better understand the current and future workforce needs across the maritime industry in our region; bringing together employers, training providers, policy makers, and the public; helping to increase training opportunities and career events related to the sector; and working to bring grant funds to our region to fund these workforce development efforts.

Our workforce development work in the maritime sector is still in its early stages – additional strategies and projects are in development.
