Member Announcement: New Online Members’ Portal

February 12, 2018

The Seafarers’ International Union of Canada is making it easier for members to have up to date documents on file for job calls! Rather than scanning and sending or even mailing in your required documents, you can now upload them yourself through the new SIU member portal on our website. This can be done on your computer or on your Smartphone. All members should go online and create their profile in the portal.


To sign up for an account, you must have an email address and your SIU Probationary or Book number. Full instructions on how to create a profile and upload documents can be found here. Documents include things like training certificates, police background check, passport, work visa, safety certificates and licenses all in one easy-to-access place.


When the Union dispatches you to a job, we can digitally access your documentation to pass it on to the employer and confirm the job. Going forward, this is how the union will be collecting member documents.


If you have any questions please contact your local union hall.
