We are pleased to announce the final amount raised for the 2014 UK Three Peaks Challenge is $15,600. Thank you to all our donors for their more than generous support toward this fundraising campaign. These funds will assist us to provide support for seafarers visiting Canadian ports, particularly at the local Seafarers' Centres where they will often go for camaraderie or to participate in activities.
Your support is greatly appreciated. Stay tuned for future initiatives as we enter the new year.

After a long and private struggle with cancer, our long serving volunteer, Executive Secretary, Honouray Board member and friend, Sue Hanby, passed away on October 12th. She will be sadly missed by her husband of 48 yrs Bernard, daughters Lynn (Simon) and Tamara (Bartz), grandchildren Joey, Emma, Soleil, Nika, Liam, Dylan, Xaviera, and Amani Mae, and all of us at the International Sailors' Society Canada.
The Board of Directors of the International Sailors' Society Canada has established annual bursary that will be awarded in honur of Sue Hanby. Each year the ISSC will call for applications from students that are registered or enrolling in a program associated with the marine industry.
