Canadian Marine Advisory Council (CMAC)
The Canadian Marine Advisory Council (CMAC) is Transport Canada's national consultative body for marine matters. Participants include representatives of individuals and parties that have a recognized interest in boating and shipping concerning safety, recreational matters, navigation, marine pollution and response and marine security.
Subjects typically discussed include:
- the development and acceptance of international conventions, regulations, codes, standards, and recommendations;
- the development and implementation of national statutes, regulations, codes, standards, recommendations and procedures;
- operations and services; and
- any other matters related to marine safety, marine services, marine pollution prevention and response, and marine security.
There are nine Standing Committees to discuss issues and topics relative to their area and make recommendations for consideration.
The dates of future regional CMAC meetings will be posted on this website as soon as they become available.
