CCG enhances services with additional fleet capacity

491 ccg

 

The Canadian Coast Guard has entered into two supply arrangements (SAs) to enhance its marine services, including ice clearance, icebreaking, vessel assistance, towing, maintaining aids to navigation, responding to shipboard fires, and stablizing vessels in distress. Le Groupe Océan inc. and McKeil Marine Limited are the private sector partners selected to provide the additional support in the St. Lawrence and Great Lakes region on an as/when needed basis. These agreements are intended to facilitate commercial navigation, and also to ensure the protection of marine environments by making more resources available to the Coast Guard in the event of an environmental response. In addition to these arrangements, the Coast Guard continues to assess its options in the short and long term to increase its icebreaking capability.
