Fatigue Management at Sea - e-course (Transport Canada)

Transport Canada Marine Safety & Security has launched the Fatigue Management at Sea e-course, produced in association with the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS). This online learning is available at no cost to all Canadian seafarers with a valid Candidate Document Number (CDN), courtesy of Transport Canada. Enrolment is also available for purchase by the general public.

Fatigue is a contributing factor to safety issues across Canada’s transportation sector, including the marine transportation system. Recognizing the risk of fatigue is key to understanding how to prevent it, and Transport Canada is committed to increasing awareness of this important issue. The e-course has been developed to inform participants about the hazards of fatigue and to support those working in the industry in the implementation of effective measures to ensure the safety and well-being of seafarers. Transport Canada aims to ensure that those most impacted by the hazards of fatigue can easily access key information to help them recognize the causes and symptoms of fatigue, and to develop practical strategies to lessen fatigue risks for themselves and their co-workers.

The Fatigue Management at Sea e-course is accessible via the Managing fatigue at sea in Canada webpage.


Gen Z: Understanding the career aspirations of young people in 2024

Young people represent tomorrow's workforce. They are an integral part of the solution to the challenges of the job market. This online survey, conducted by Desjardins and Academos in January 2023 among 1,013 Quebec students aged 14 to 30, aims to measure young people's perceptions, concerns and expectations regarding their careers.

The data it reveals will help us better understand young people's career aspirations, and equip employers, caregivers and parents to better support them in their reflection and career choice process, in the development of their full potential, and in the fulfillment of their dreams.
