Decision No. 423-W-2013

November 4, 2013

APPLICATION by Petro-Nav Inc., pursuant to the Coasting Trade Act, S.C., 1992, c. 31, for a licence.

File No.: 


Petro-Nav Inc. applied for a licence to use the “NORDISLE”,a Cypriot tanker, to transport clean petroleum products, in four voyages, from Sarnia, Ontario to Oakville, Ontario and from Montréal, Quebec to Oakville, commencing on or about November 4 and ending on or about November 30, 2013.


Is there a suitable Canadian ship available to perform the activity?


The applicant contacted the operators identified by the Canadian Transportation Agency (Agency) staff and no Canadian ships were offered. Therefore, the Agency determines that there is no suitable Canadian ship available to perform the activity.

The Agency is providing this determination to the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness to consider whether to issue the licence. This Decision is not an authority to operate.
