|Dear OCA Members,
The Board met September 16th to review and discuss a very full Agenda. What a great start for the OCA's new year!
During the meeting, it was easy to see that a lot of work had continued over the summer months with many of the Board Members. Some outcomes from the discussions were:
1. the OCA will be sending three representatives to Ottawa in October to meet with various influential contacts regarding the Temporary Foreign Workers Program.
2. a test sample of the proposed Camp Small Vessel Proficiency Training was completed in late August audited by Transport Canada staff. It was found that some areas of the training still needed some work. These add-ons will be completed and submitted this fall. Further information will be sent to your attention once we have a response from Transport Canada.
Everyone involved in these two important initiatives has donated countless hours and their expertise to finding positive solutions for OCA Members. Thank you all for your generous support!!
