Welcome to the Spring edition of The Sailor! Spring has sprung here at the SIU with a busy shipping season well underway. The 2019 shipping season kicked off on March 26, marking the 60th anniversary of the St. Lawrence Seaway. As our members well know, the Seaway is essential for the Canadian shipping industry and plays a pivotal role in much of our day-to-day work.

Happy New Year and welcome to the Winter edition of The Sailor. With the ice finally starting to melt and the days getting longer, we’re looking forward to the beginning of a new season. Each new season brings with it a sense of excitement. This new season will be especially exciting as we have several new recruits joining us on board.
