Modernizing the Domestic Ferries Security Regulations

Current status: Closed

Open on June 19, 2021 and will be closed on August 18, 2021.

The Domestic Ferries Security Regulations is one of the tools Transport Canada uses to keep Canada’s marine transportation system secure.

The regulation helps to manage the risks to domestic ferry services in regions where losing ferry service would have a major impact.

We want to modernize Canada’s regulations to make sure that the marine transportation security framework (system of laws that keeps marine transportation in Canada safe) continues to be appropriate, effective, and can respond to modern threats and risks to the marine transportation system.
