APPLICATION by Caravan Stage Society on behalf of National Caravan Stage Company Inc., pursuant to the Coasting Trade Act, S.C., 1992, c. 31, for a licence.
Caravan Stage Society on behalf of National Caravan Stage Company Inc. applied 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 productions are performed for audiences who watch the shows from the shore. The ship will be moored to the shore along the south coast of British Columbia. The activity will start on September 19, 2018 and will end on September 18, 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.
