APPLICATION by IT International Telecom Canada Inc., pursuant to the Coasting Trade Act, S.C., 1992, c. 31, for a licence.

Case number: 

IT International Telecom Canada Inc. applied, through its representative, for a licence to use the "IT INTREPID", a cable ship registered in Barbados, to install a cable between Toronto, Ontario, Canada and Wilson, New York, United States of America. The activity will start on July 15, 2018 and will end on August 14, 2018.

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.
