Where: Canada Place at the Port of Vancouver (999 Canada Place)
Admission: Free. RSVP on Facebook »

Event Highlights:

“[This event] is a terrific opportunity to bring the community together,” said Robin Silverster, president and chief executive officer of the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority, “to celebrate the rich history of Vancouver’s maritime culture and recognize the significant role the maritime sector plays in the daily lives of Canadians, getting goods to and from our port city.”

World Maritime Day was established in 1978 by the United Nations to mark the 20th anniversary of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Convention’s entry into force. The theme of this year’s event is “Empowering Women in the Maritime Community” which provides an opportunity to highlight the important contribution of women within the maritime sector.
