Join Our Team

If you have customer service experience & know how to handle a small boat, we want to hear from you!

We take safety very seriously at False Creek Ferries. We will only consider applicants that have already completed the necessary certification. That said, we understand that obtaining the SVOP & MED-A3 licenses constitute a significant undertaking for prospective candidates. We are happy to consider resumes from those who don’t yet have the licences, but are planning on getting them for shore based positions. It does not take long to recoup the cost of obtaining these Transport Canada required licenses.
