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 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.
The most recently held national CMAC took place at the Shaw Center, located at 55 Colonel By Drive in Ottawa, from April 19 to 21, 2016.
There are nine Standing Committees to discuss issues and topics relative to their area and make recommendations for consideration.
