GNN Marine Services celebrate an upcoming 1 year anniversary, marking the beginning of a new era for tourism and transportation in the waters off Port Hardy!
The tremendous success of the first operational season of GNN Marine Services and Nakwakto Rapids Tours exemplifies the benefits of local community partnerships. GNN Marine Services has a training program that exceeds all current industry standards for vessel operation and training. Carefully selected candidates from the nations are engaged in a one-on-one skills and knowledge development course that prepares them for marine emergencies and situations on the water. The training course provides the experience needed to support candidates’ future employment in providing marine services to the aquaculture sector, forestry companies, the Nakwakto Rapids Tours, general water taxi operations, commercial marine work, and band journeys to the traditional territories.
Currently 2 full time and 1 part time employee from the band work on the boats, with others in administration and 6 full time positions being available seasonally throughout summer months. Check the Band's newsletter for job postings or contact Conrad Browne in the band office for employment information. Gwa'sala-'Nakwaxda'xw Nations Marine Services is a limited company owned and operated by the GN Nations.
