Who is the focus of this consultation

Transport Canada is seeking feedback from marine stakeholders that are regulated under the Canada Shipping Act 2001 and its regulations. The public may also submit feedback on the discussion paper.

Key questions for discussion

The discussion paper outlines Transport Canada’s proposed framework to determine and apply administrative monetary penalties, including the range of penalties being considered and how to calculate the amount of a penalty for a violation. We are seeking feedback on the potential impacts of this framework on regulated parties, and any additional considerations when determining the amount of a penalty.

  • What are your views on the proposed framework, and do you see any potential impacts for your organization or sector?
  • Are there any additional aggravating or mitigating factors that should be considered when determining an appropriate administrative monetary penalty (AMP) amount to apply for a violation?
