The B.C. Shipbuilding and Ship Repair Board (SSRB), with support from the B.C. Ministry of Jobs, Tourism & Skills Training, is kicking off their Shipbuilders campaign with an online contest.

Individuals can participate in the campaign and win a chance at one of three cash prizes with a total value of six thousand dollars by sharing a story, video, and/or survey about their experiences in the shipbuilding and ship repair industry.



“The shipbuilding industry is composed of a wide-variety of jobs and skill sets within the shipbuilding and ship repair sector,” indicates Lisa Bumbaco, VP of Human Resources at Seaspan and Chair of the SSRB Communications and Marketing Sub-Committee” “We felt it was important to present different methods of entry that would appeal to all of our workforce.”

Selected stories and elements of the survey will be used throughout the development of the Shipbuilders campaign, and three finalists will be chosen by a jury of industry experts to take home cash prizes of $3000.00 for first place (donated by Seaspan Marine Corporation), $2,000.00 for second place (donated by B.C. Ferries), and $1000.00 for third place (jointly donated by Meridian Marine Industries and Point Hope Maritime).


The 'We are Shipbuilders' campaign is geared at raising the awareness of career options and opportunities in British Columbia’s thriving shipbuilding and repair industry, and highlighting the advantages of working for a growing, safe, high tech and stable industry that offers excellent working conditions on the beautiful West Coast of British Columbia.

The contest starts Oct. 28, 2013 and ends Dec 20, 2013. For more information: http://weareshipbuilders.ca" target="_blank"> weareshipbuilders.ca.
