[Manz Line]
by Don Ramsey

The MANZ Line was a Canadian company which was first registered in August 1936 when it took over the existing services of the Canadian Government Line, and it ceased operations in July 1971.
Don Ramsey, 5 December 2001

The MANZ Line was first registered in August 1936 as a venture between Commonwealth and Dominion Line (later Port Line), the Ellerman and Bucknall Steamship Co., Ltd. and the New Zealand Shipping Company. The MANZ line took over operations of the Canadian government's commercial shipping company as well as 10 ships it had purchased. The company ran from Canada to New Zealand and Australia, first only from western ports and later from eastern Canadian ports.

The flag was presented to the company by Sir Thomas Royden, a director of Port Line who presented the company with the flag of the former Royden Line with a maple leaf in the center diamond.

Although service was interupted during World War II, it resumed in 1945. In 1947, it purchased its only new vessel since formed in 1936. The company discontinued service in July, 1971.
