The Canadian Coast Guard is hiring! Anyone with an interest in a marine career and who wants to work ashore may be interested in pursuing this opportunity as a Marine Communications and Traffic Services (MCTS) Officer.



These Coast Guard employees are described as the “eyes and ears” of the waterways, providing a vital service for recreational boaters and professional mariners alike. Their duties include the monitoring of marine frequencies and response to distress calls. Their service also protects the environment and the safety of shipping by screening vessels entering Canadian waters, delivering information and advice to regulate marine traffic movement, and taking appropriate action to ensure the safe and efficient movement of vessels in Canadian waters.
