Clear Seas receives $1.75M for Indigenous Marine Career Advancement Program

Federal Minister Harjit Sajjan recently announced over $3.7M in PacifiCan funding for four projects in British Columbia. Among the recipients of the funding was Clear Seas, which received $1.75M toward the Indigenous Marine Career Advancement Program. Indigenous workers who are interested in starting or growing a career in the maritime sector receive training, culturally safe wrap-around supports, and career opportunities through IMCAP. IMCAP’s goal is to address the skills and labour shortages in the marine industry while bolstering Indigenous participation in related industries. “Investing in innovation, strong communities and our workforce is laying the groundwork for prosperity for British Columbians today and well into the future,” said Sajjan.
