About Salish Sea Industrial Services

The Esquimalt Nation, Songhees Nation and the Ralmax Group of Companies have a common vision, which provided the opportunity to create a partnership in Salish Sea Industrial Services Ltd in May 2012. Each brings unique strengths and experience to the company and all actively participates in the company’s management, operations and community relations. The business also serves as an integral part of the Salish Sea First Nations Employment Program providing applied-learning, mentoring, and apprenticeship opportunities for those in training.

Salish Sea is a proud Registered Aboriginal Business and a private tax paying corporation currently working through two operating divisions: Marine Services Division and First Nations Employment Program.

Salish Sea First Nations Employment Program

Salish Sea First Nations Employment Program recruits local First Nations peoples regardless of employment skills and experience. Salish Sea endeavors to place the employees in meaningful and progressive positions at its own operation, plus Ralmax and other local companies.

We work with each First Nations employee to find the best employment fit through on-the-job and formal training, upgrading and apprenticeship programs, in cooperation with the hiring companies.

The Salish Sea program operates without dependence on any government funding programs. The hiring company pays a wage or salary commensurate with the employee’s skill and experience.
