Modernizing fees for Marine Cargo Services
Current status: OPEN
Open on February 13, 2019 and will be closed on April 12, 2019.
Transport Canada is proposing to simplify and adjust fees for marine cargo services. Canada's marine transportation sector relies on, and benefits from, services that Transport Canada provides. Our marine safety inspectors ensure higher-risk marine cargo is safely loaded and stowed. We are inviting Canadians to review the proposal for marine cargo fee modernization, and to voice their opinions on the proposed adjustments.
