A new agreement between Transport Canada and the St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation has been signed to continue the not-for-profit organization’s role under the Management Operations and Maintenance Agreement, which has been in place since 1998. The signing of this agreement follows the St. Lawrence Seaway Review, which was launched by Transport Canada in 2017, to ensure the Seaway continues to be strategically positioned as a critical transportation corridor for North America. Included in the new agreement are measures to strengthen relationships with Indigenous Peoples and local communities and improve climate change responsiveness and accountability.
