This thesis develops the concept of a Canadian National Maritime University. This proposition follows directly from a comparative study of seven European, four Asian and two North American countries which was initiated by the convening of the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers, 1978. (STCWS) -- It was considered that a synopsis of a country's general education system--followed by details of the shipbuilding and maritime training programs--examined, wherever possible, from the perspective of historical, philosophical, economic and sociological roots, would enhance an understanding of cultural differences and help provide guidance for officials and others. As the study proceeded, it appeared logical to provide an account of the American and Canadian systems for those unfamiliar with same since these also have important peculiarities. -- It was from such considerations as these that the idea of a National Maritime University occurred since it appeared to be a logical development for Canada at this period in history and one that has already taken place in many of the countries examined. A careful perusal of the STCWS convention (Article XI) appears to substantiate such a development.
