Determination No. W-2017-209

December 20, 2017

APPLICATION by Fraser River Pile & Dredge (GP) Inc., pursuant to the Coasting Trade Act, S.C., 1992, c. 31, for a licence.

Case number: 

Fraser River Pile & Dredge (GP) Inc. applied, through its representative, for a licence to use the "FRPD 309", a Canadian non-duty paid trailing suction hopper dredger, to carry out maintenance dredging work within the deep-sea shipping channel of the Fraser River, British Columbia. The activity will start on January 15, 2018 and will end on January 14, 2019.

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.
