5. The Eastern Canadian Waters and Fishing zones south of 60° North are divided into Ice Control Zones as shown in Appendix A.
6. During the period specified in subsection 3 (ii), the Canadian Coast Guard may declare any ice control zone to be an active Ice Control Zone and promulgate this information via Notice to Shipping and Notices to Mariners. Information concerning the status of any Ice Control Zone may be obtained by contacting any Canadian Coast Guard Ice Operations Centre or the nearest Marine Communications and Traffic Services (MCTS) Centre.
7. The declaration that an Ice Control Zone is active will depend on a determination by the Canadian Coast Guard of the presence or expected presence of ice conditions dangerous to shipping. An active Ice Contro Zone will be de-activated when the Canadian Coast Guard decides that the risk no longer exists.
