2023 HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES – Seaspan and Southern Railway of British Columbia

In 1991, the Fraser River Discovery Centre Society established the Fraser River Hall of Fame to recognize and honour individuals or organizations that have made significant and noteworthy contributions to the health and sustainability of the Fraser River, its culture, people, industry and environment.  

Seaspan is an important part of the Pacific Northwest marine industry with three shipyards in B.C, a commercial ferry service and a marine transportation business that provides ship assist, coastal transportation and fuel bunkering services. SRY is based in New Westminster and provides businesses and customers located in the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley with seamless rail connections to markets throughout North America. Both are members of the Washington Group of Companies. 

“On behalf of the Seaspan and SRY teams, we are thrilled to be honoured as this year’s inductees into the Hall of Fame,” said Derek Ollmann, President of Seaspan Marine Transportation. “The Washington Companies are proud to support the Centre and the work they do to ensure the Fraser River is a living, working and thriving place that can continue to be a vital economic engine for British Columbia and a Place of Learning about the Indigenous heritage and teachings of the River.”  

Tickets to the Hall of Fame Gala – as well as access to the Hall of Fame silent auction and donations site – are now available HERE. All proceeds of the Fraser River Hall of Fame support the educational and public programming at the Centre.
