Presentation Abstract

As part of the Oceans Protection Plan, the Government of Canada will establish a shared approach to better understand coastal ecosystems and the potential effects of regional marine vessel activity on the environment. Transport Canada’s Cumulative Effects of Marine Shipping Initiative seeks to create a cumulative effects assessment framework that would focus on 6 coastal sites across Canada including South Coast British Columbia. Local communities, stakeholders and Indigenous Nations will be engaged to determine key concerns and help collect baseline information that can be used to inform assessments of the cumulative effects of marine shipping framework and identify specific mitigation tools that can be applied to existing and future vessel movements. This presentation will provide an overview of the cumulative effects of marine shipping initiative, engagement and collaboration activities, timelines of the initiative, desired outcomes, and next steps.
