BC Marine Service Industry Facts


Many of you participated in Quadrant’s government-funded project over the past 2 years. We asked you questions about your business structure, employees, and customer base. Fifteen people helped us pilot the new Marine Service Tech trade challenge process and received their Journeyperson MST ticket from the Province of BC.

And, during this whole process, we worked on finding the best ways to help support our apprentices and employer partners in the small businesses that make up the BC small craft / recreational marine industry.

The project is officially complete. Check out our Careers page / About Industry and view the highlight report or the full report.

Thanks for working with us to promote BC’s Marine Service Centres of Excellence and Employers of Excellence.
