Scope

This SHIP SAFETY BULLETIN informs vessel owners and operators that Transport Canada now recognizes certain near coastal voyage, class 2 voyages, as sheltered waters voyages.

Background

A sheltered waters voyage is one on waters we have found to be low risk. Vessels that operate only on sheltered waters voyages may be subject to reduced safety requirements due to this low risk environment.

Transport Canada is updating the Vessel Certificates Regulations to propose a broader definition of a sheltered waters voyage and to expand the sheltered waters voyages schedules.

These proposed changes mean that some waters currently classified as near coastal voyage, Class 2 voyages would be classified as sheltered waters voyages.

Since we don't expect the proposed Regulations to be published for the start of the 2015 navigation season, Transport Canada Marine Safety and Security has published the policy on Recognizing Certain Near Coastal Voyage, Class 2 Voyages as Sheltered Waters Voyages. This allows industry to benefit from the proposed changes right away.

The policy:

  • Recognizes voyages that fit into the definition below as sheltered waters voyages:

    A voyage in Canada, on a lake or a river above tidal waters, where a vessel can never be further than 2.5 nautical miles from shore (measured either from the mainland or from an island the vessel can use as a safe refuge from the weather); and
  • Adds waters in the Additional Information section below, to the waters already listed in Schedule 1 of the Vessel Certificates Regulations.
