Marine Transportation Consultation Portal

The Government of Canada has created a consultation portal for two related topics: improving marine safety, and formalizing a tanker moratorium in northern BC. This portal features a discussion paper and offers several options for submitting comments. The engagement period closes on September 30, 2016.

UBCM has been active in advocating on behalf of local governments on marine safety, and presented a submission on the topic at a roundtable meeting with Transport Canada in July.  Further details on this submission are available in this recent Compass article.

Local governments interested in marine safety or the tanker moratorium are encouraged to submit their comments via the portal.
