To be the leading source of credible, fact-based information to bring clarity to decision-making for safe and sustainable marine shipping in Canada.
A vibrant, safe and sustainable marine shipping industry that leads world standards, and that Canadians feel part of and trust.
As Canada’s international trade and the global demand for its products continues to grow, the need for anchorages, which allow ships to wait outside a harbour to unload or pick-up their cargos, has increased. This has an impact on coastal areas, the environment and on the traditional activities of Indigenous communities.
The Marine Acoustic Research Station (MARS) project was created to measure the acoustic signature of vessels transiting the St. Lawrence River to help manage the effect of ship noise on marine mammals.
Climate change leads to more sea ice and higher risks for commercial marine shipping
With an increased focus on Canada’s relationship with Indigenous peoples, what is the marine shipping industry doing to improve relations and to work together with Indigenous communities? This blog provides an overview of where the industry – from ports, ship builders and operators to educational and training bodies – is on the path towards reconciliation.
Commercial ships resupplying the remote communities of Canada’s Eastern Arctic face multiple logistical challenges along the way. This year, COVID-19 and the threat it posed to both the ships’ crews and northern communities was another challenge they had to deal with.
