The British Columbia Branch of the Institute was formed in
Vancouver in 1961 and, at that time, was the second overseas branch
after Hong Kong. After several years in hiatus, the branch was
resurrected and expanded in 2005 to include members outside of
British Columbia and was re-named the Canada Branch to reflect
this. Vancouver serves as the Headquarters, while Montreal
has had representation dating back to 2008.
Examinations are offered in four locations: Vancouver, Montreal,
Toronto and most recently Halifax was introduced. Vancouver
and Montreal have an established programme of Luncheon Speakers
which are open to both Institute Members and others in the local
maritime community, offering topical lectures at least four or five
times a year.
The Branch organises regularly seminars, social get-togethers,
such as pub nights and golf tournaments, highlight industry
