The Minister of Transport, the Honourable Omar Alghabra, has announced $12.5 million in funding to launch the Ballast Water Innovation Program in the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence region.  Technical challenges caused by unique water conditions, such as cooler temperatures and heavy sedimentation rates, can pose a challenge to ballast water management systems in the region. Transport Canada is now accepting applications for research funding from Canadian vessel owners and operators, Canadian Port Authorities, not-for-profit organizations, public sector organizations, and academia until May 10, 2023.  Approved projects are expected to begin in 2023.
