The Government of Canada has introduced new regulations under the Canada Marine Act to enforce safety in the marine transportation system. These regulations allow enforcement officers to issue fines for violations of the Act and its associated regulations. The fines serve as a flexible enforcement tool to motivate compliance and deter rule-breaking. The penalty amounts range up to $5,000 for individuals and $25,000 for corporations or vessels. The government’s priority is the safety of Canadians, and these regulations aim to encourage compliance, correct violations, and prevent future incidents in the marine industry.
