The Dennis & Phyllis Washington Foundation (the “Foundation”), in conjunction with Seaspan, announced today a multi-year, multi-million dollar investment in the future of British Columbia’s marine industrial sector. The commitment totals $2.9M and includes a three-year, $900K donation by the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation to three institutional trades training programs in Canada. This donation has been given in support of the Industrial and Regional Benefits Policy program under the National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS). The donation recipients include the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) to support Aboriginals in trades, Camosun College to support women in trades, and the Canadian Welding Association (CWA) Foundation for both new welding equipment and teacher professional development.
