Canada introduces more restrictions on small ships and Arctic operations | Instant News

Canada now bans ships carrying more than 12 passengers to engage in non-essential activities such as tourism and recreation.

This follows Canada’s March 13 decision to blocking cruise ships carrying more than 500 people, including crew members, until July.

The new ban on small ships also extends “at least until June 30.”

Canadian cruises are banned in Arctic waters

In addition, Canadian cruise ships are prohibited from mooring, navigating or transiting in the Arctic waters of Canada, including Nunatsiavut, Nunavik, and Labrador Beach.

60 days notice for foreign passenger ships

If there are foreign passenger vessels attempting to enter Arctic waters, it is necessary to notify the minister of transportation 60 days and to comply with any conditions deemed necessary to ensure the protection of marine personnel and local communities from the spread of COVID-19.

These Arctic measures will remain in effect until October.

Transport Canada also takes action to protect travelers and workers with ferries and other important passenger ships.
