Are you looking for a chance to meet and assist working people from around the world who visit Hamilton on a short-term basis? The Mission to Seafarers of Southern Ontario is looking for volunteers to serve at their Hamilton Station, most days and evenings during the week. Positions include:

  • Ship visitor: Visit the ships in the Port of Hamilton to greet seafarers on their arrival, and assess their needs for local assistance and service.
  • Mission hosts: Staff the mission recreation centre on Burlington Street East, and offer a friendly welcome and hospitality to those who visit.
  • Drivers: Offer transportation to local points of interest in the Hamilton and Burlington areas from the piers at the Port of Hamilton in a Mission-owned van. Applicants must have a valid G license.

Our current opening times are 5-9pm each day, but the Mission is looking to extend our hours beyond those times so that they would work to make other time periods available during the day to suit volunteer availability. All applicants must complete a Vulnerable Sector Police Check, at the Mission’s expense.

For further details and to apply please contact Pastor Dan Phannenhour at: or 905-616-8985
