APPLICATION by National Caravan Stage Company Inc., pursuant to the Coasting Trade Act, S.C., 1992, c. 31, for a licence.

Case number: 

National Caravan Stage Company Inc. applied , through its representative, for a licence to use the "AMARA ZEE", a custom-built sailing ship registered in the United States of America, to be used as a travelling stage from which its theatrical production is performed for audiences who watch the show from the shore. The ship will be moored to the shore for three performances in Sooke, British Columbia. The activity will start on July 12, 2018 and will end on July 19, 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.
