HPA marks International Day of the Seafarer with $10,000 donation

June 25 is International Day of the Seafarer. Each year, we recognize the hard work and sacrifice of those who help bring us 90% of everything we use.

This year, Hamilton Port Authority (HPA) is proud to announce that $10,000 from its charity golf tournament will go to support the Mission to Seafarers Southern Ontario (MTSSO). MTSSO provides necessary services and a friendly welcome to the hundreds of seafarers who visit the ports of Hamilton, Toronto and Oshawa each year.

On June 27, HPA, MTSSO and the Marine Club are hosting a job fair at the Hamilton Convention Centre, with information and exhibitors from companies and educational partners in the local marine sector. If you have ever been curious about a career on the water, please visit from 12:00-4:00.
