Saint John, New Brunswick — The Government of Canada is investing in new infrastructure for Canadian Coast Guard operations.The Canadian Coast Guard plays a vital role in one of the safest marine systems in the world, and its members go to work every day to ensure the safety of mariners and the marine environment.
The Government of Canada is making our oceans healthier, cleaner and safer than ever, thanks to the $1.5 billion Oceans Protections plan. The Canadian Coast Guard’s two new Channel Survey and Sounding Vessels (CSSVs) will support the ongoing commitment to ensure the safety of mariners in Canada as they serve as the platform for the Canadian Hydrographic Service’s Channel Survey Program. The program collects information about channel conditions and water depth of the St. Lawrence waterway to assist in safe navigation.
The Government of Canada is proud to honour the Canadian Coast Guard and its members who help ensure the safety of mariners and the marine environment, and help facilitate year-round marine shipping that is critical to Canada’s economy.
