Marking the one year anniversary of the $1.5 billion Oceans Protection Plan, the Government of Canada announced that $1.9 million is being dedicated over three years to reduce local marine traffic issues. The Proactive Vessel Management initiative will help address local marine traffic issues by identifying where local management actions could reduce conflicts between marine users or minimize environmental impacts, such as routing and speed controls. A framework will be developed in consultation with coastal communities, Indigenous peoples, industry, provincial and municipal governments, and non-governmental organizations.
