About Mission to Seafarers, Halifax NS

Loneliness, danger and separation from loved ones are just some of the challenges that seafarers face every day. SEAFARING IS ONE OF THE WORLD’S MOST DANGEROUS OCCUPATIONS. Over 90% of world trade is carried by sea, providing work to 1.8 million seafarers.

Throughout a long and distinguished history, The Mission to Seafarers has grown to become one of the largest port-based welfare operators in the world, providing a service in 200 ports, 365 days a year, across 50 countries. Our vision is to operate a network where seafarers are valued and cared for in the ports where the need is greatest. The Halifax Mission to Seafarers is a Canadian non-profit charity.

Under the guidance of our Mission Manager and support from the Assistant Manager, our volunteers provide a warm welcome where seafarers can relax away from their ships, and obtain support which is relevant, compassionate and life-enhancing. Seafarers have access to our free wifi so they can freely communicate with their loved ones. Our Mission provides an interdenominational chaplaincy ministry of practical, emotional and spiritual support to all seafarers passing through our port, regardless of faith or background.
