Loyalist Township
Loyalist Township we provide Ferry service on Lake Ontario, sailing three kilometers that separate beautiful and friendly Amherst Island from the mainland. The 450 residents of the Island (900 in summer) rely on the dedicated crew for safe passage.

One of Loyalist Township’s key goals is to be an employer of choice. We offer competitive pay rates, great benefits and OMERS pension. We encourage learning and development and believe a respectful team-based workplace is an effective and healthy workplace.

The Township is a growing community of over 17,000 residents situated on the north shore of Lake Ontario between the Town of Greater Napanee and the City of Kingston. It is a blend of rural and urban areas with several smaller hamlets throughout. Most importantly our island is a beautiful combination of waterfront lands and farms and is home to the hamlets of Stella and Emerald. The Island is rich in history, including its famous stone fences! The region is an outdoor-lovers dream, with beautiful Canadian shield lakes and parks minutes away to the north. Next door is the historic City of Kingston, which boasts an amazing downtown core right on Lake Ontario, full of excellent restaurants and night life offerings. We are also connected to large urban centres by the 401, with the GTA two hours to the west and Ottawa two hours to the east.

Come join Loyalist for your next marine career move!...
