Introducing a Fee for Marine Insurance Certification Services

Current status: CLOSED
Opened on February 13, 2019 and closed on April 12, 2019.

Transport Canada is proposing a new fee for the marine insurance certification services. We issue a certificate to ship owners when they provide proof of insurance or other financial security. We’re introducing a fee to better reflect the direct benefits received by the marine transportation industry as a result of the service and we want your feedback.
