Abstract

The present Regulations enforce the Arctic Waters Pollution Prevention Act (R.S.C. 1985, c. A-12). In particular, the Regulations govern navigation in coastal waters within the Canadian jurisdiction. They deal with the construction of ships, bunkering stations, Arctic Pollution Prevention Certificates, ice navigators; fuel and water concerns; sewage deposit and oil deposit mishaps. All vessels above 100 tons that navigate Canadian Arctic waters must comply with these regulations, including reporting requirements. Shipowners may request an Arctic Pollution Prevention Certificate for vessels that carry more than 453m3 of pollutants (including all oil, fuel, and lubricants). The text consists of 29 sections and 9 Schedules.
