Return to The Coalition



The COALITION NAVIGATION will exercise its influence as a pan Canadian group representing citizen’s associations, environmental organizations, local governments and other stakeholders from across Canada with an aim of introducing a new legislative framework that is science-based, within or outside of the Canada Shipping Act, as ultimately deemed most appropriate. The science-based approach will be the product of numerous studies by university research organizations on behalf of the COALITION NAVIGATION and its sponsors from local governments and associations. This approach will also include consultations with other federal ministries and levels of government as well as local stakeholders to assure 1) local considerations are reflected and 2) legislative synergies pertaining to motor boats among the Acts affecting Canada’s waterways.
