Determination No. W-2017-1

January 3, 2017
APPLICATION by McNally Construction Inc., pursuant to the Coasting Trade Act, S.C., 1992, c.31, for a licence.
Case number: 

McNally Construction Inc. applied, through its representative, for a licence to use the “J.G. BURKE”, a semi‑submersible caisson launch barge registered in the United States of America, for the construction of six floating reinforced concrete caissons as part of the scope of work associated with a new jetty in the Halifax Harbour. The activity will start on March 1 and will end on August 31, 2017.

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

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 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 Determination is not an authority to operate.
