The Chamber of Shipping held its Annual General Meeting on March 13 in Vancouver. Following association business and an update on activities from Robert Lewis-Manning, President of the COS, the Honourable Marc Garneau, Minister of Transport Canada made a number of announcements related to initiatives under the Oceans Protection Plan. The announcements included an award to Aqua Guard for $1.2 million in spill response equipment; a pilot project to supply First Nations communities on coasts across Canada with marine domain awareness technology; the establishment of a coastal restoration fund to continue projects aimed at protecting resident killer whales (e.g., noise reduction studies and evaluation of the anchorage interim protocol); a review of Canadian Port Authorities with assistance to allow ports to compete globally (including investments to assist with congestion).
