Decision No. 188-W-2011
May 19, 2011
APPLICATION by Canadian Yacht Charters, pursuant to the Coasting Trade Act, S.C., 1992, c. 31, for a licence.
File No. W9125/11-02511
Canadian Yacht Charters applied for a licence to use the "SUMMER BREEZE", an American sailing vessel, for bare boat chartering around Manitoulin Island, in the province of Ontario, which includes the North Channel and Georgian Bay areas of Lake Huron, commencing on June 15 and ending on October 31, 2011.
Is there a suitable Canadian ship available to provide the service? Is there an identical or similar adequate marine service available from any person operating one or more Canadian ships?
FACTS AND DETERMINATIONS
Canadian Transportation Agency (Agency) staff gave notice of the application to the Canadian marine industry and no Canadian ships were offered. Therefore, the Agency determines that there is no suitable Canadian ship available to provide the service, and that there is no identical or similar adequate marine service available from any person operating one or more Canadian ships.
The Agency is providing these determinations to the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness to consider whether to issue the licence. This Decision is not an authority to operate.
