Policy Recommendation

It is proposed that Canada accede to the Nairobi International Convention on the Removal of Wrecks, 2007 and apply the Convention to its internal waters and territorial sea.

While the Nairobi Convention includes both operational and liability provisions, it is dominated by the operational aspects and should therefore be implemented either through an amendment of the Navigable Waters Protection Act or through new standalone legislation.
