The Government of Canada has officially announced their support for a ban on heavy fuel oil in Arctic waters. They will be seeking a phased-in approach to the ban as Canada discusses ways to help balance the environmental benefits with the economic realities of northern, Indigenous and Inuit communities with IMO countries. The decision is based on conclusions from Transport Canada’s domestic impact assessment of the proposed heavy fuel oil ban in the Arctic, which can be found here: Let’s talk marine fuel in the Arctic.
