Re: Engineers for CCG

Re: Taxes

Thanks for the replies. I only have a Canadian passport so can't really go to the UK or anywhere else. I am exploring the non-resident route so if anyone has any experiences to share it would be appreciated. Would someone living abroad need to come back to Canada every two years for a TC medical? Or...

Taxes

What's the best way for a Canadian, working contracts on foreign ships/foreign owners, to deal with taxes? Moving out of the country is not an option for me so need to find a way to put more money in my pocket. Also, I would appreciate if anyone could recommend a tax accountant in the GTA who is exp...

Re: Chief Engineer, Intermediate, BC Ferries, Horseshoe Bay

What's a Chief Engineer Intermediate? Is there another C/E on-board that he/she reports to? Some of these terms are very confusing.

CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

I got my First Class CoC renewed last year and was issued a CoC as per STCW 1978 "as amended" (a laminated sheet with a stamp/seal); this is even though I completed the MED refreshers and MAFA. Is this CoC as per the STCW 2010 Manila Convention? Transport Canada is not able to give me a sa...

Re: NFLanders only - TC 3rd Class for Offshore

I quite agree with you; its a disgrace that as a Canadian I cannot even apply for jobs on the east coast. Is there anything we can do to change it?

You can't work in Canada without one or the other. Once you are in Canada (if you aren't already) go to the nearest TC marine office with yo...

Re: FPSO Experience

I haven't worked on an FPSO myself but I do know that Canship is operating one out of Newfoundland. They were trying to hire a First Class engineer as a 'Marine Technician' sometime back. You could contact them directly for more info.
