Event Title

Maritime awareness information system

Presentation Abstract

As part of the Oceans Protection Plan, the Government of Canada will develop a user-friendly system that increases access to local maritime data – including vessel traffic – for indigenous partners, coastal communities, and stakeholders. To do this, the Government of Canada will conduct engagement sessions to better understand community interests in a maritime awareness information system; leverage existing and new sources of information to bring the regional maritime picture into clear focus and increase the useful and trustworthy information on maritime activity that is available to coastal partners and stakeholders. Transport Canada will work with the Canadian Coast Guard, Fisheries and Oceans Canada and Environment and Climate Change Canada to deliver this initiative. This presentation will provide an overview of what we have heard from stakeholders about their needs for current information about shipping in local waters, and a shared picture for managing marine and environmental emergencies. We will present the Enhanced Maritime Situational Awareness platform and how it can facilitate collaborative information sharing amongst partners, links to other Oceans Protection Plan initiatives, identified partners, timelines, considerations and next steps.
