Budget 2013 Builds Capacity In The Short Sea Shipping Industry

OTTAWA, March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - The Canadian Shipowners Association (CSA) congratulates Minister Flaherty on a budget that will ensure Canada continues on a path of growth and prosperity into the future.

The budget's strong focus on skills and training for current and new Canadians as well as programs that will support the Canadian labour market has shown the government clearly understands the needs of businesses across the country. The creation of the Canada Job Grant and the "Expression of Interest" immigration management system and the dedication of $19 million for outreach support are important tools to help our industry grow its human capital.

"Like many industries in Canada, the short sea shipping industry requires well-trained and experienced workers to keep its companies growing and supporting the economy," said Robert Lewis-Manning, President of the CSA. "Budget 2013 is an important step towards ensuring that the targeted skills development our country requires is in place where and when it is needed."

The CSA was equally pleased to see the government renew its commitment to infrastructure. Our industry plays an important role in linking Canadian commodities to continental and global markets. With short sea shipping eligible for the $21.8 billion Community Improvement Fund, we applaud the government for recognizing the critical place that infrastructure holds in keeping Canada at the forefront as a trading nation.

With a membership of small and medium sized companies that provide vital transportation services, the Canadian Shipowners Association employs Canadians on Canadian ships on Canadian waters.
