Seaspan is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its Victoria Shipyard – a leading ship repair and modernization facility on Canada’s West Coast. Three decades ago, the business began with a 20-foot shipping container and a team of five senior managers who were tasked with re-building a thriving shipyard. Today, Seaspan’s Victoria Shipyards employs 800 people, is a major economic driver for the region, and with its reputation for taking on complex repair, refit, and conversion work, is a trusted partner to government and commercial fleets in Canada and around the world.

Seaspan Victoria Shipyards is a big contributor to the local economy. A recent socio-economic study produced by Deloitte showed that Victoria Shipyards has contributed $1.72 billion to Canada’s GDP over the last 12 years, with a total labour income of $1.27 billion and a gross output of $2.85 billion.
