Determination No. W-2018-198

September 11, 2018

APPLICATION by Providence Grain Solutions, pursuant to the Coasting Trade Act, S.C., 1992, c. 31, for a licence.

Case number: 

Providence Grain Solutions applied for a licence to use one unknown bulk cargo ship, to transport, in one voyage, between 27,000 and 29,000 metric tonnes of wheat from Churchill, Manitoba to Port-Cartier or Baie Comeau or Sorel or Québec or Montréal, Quebec. The activity will start on or about September 15, 2018 and will end on or about September 30, 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.
