Consultations on proposed Vessel Operation Restriction Regulations

Chamber of Shipping > Blog > News > Government > Consultations on proposed Vessel Operation Restriction Regulations

Transport Canada is currently working on Regulations Amending the Vessel Operation Restriction Regulations (submission 2020). The draft proposal can be found at the following link VORR  consultation. Pre-Canada Gazette, Part II consultations are being held until February 14, 2022.  The goal of updating subsections 2(7) and 2(8)(b) is to keep boaters safe and help us keep up with boating technology. New, more powerful electric motors means that some boats can do a lot more, including recreational towing. These proposed regulations amending the Vessel Operation Restriction Regulations are targeted to be published in the Canada Gazette, Part II, for winter 2022, at which time it would come into force.
