The Ship-source Oil Pollution Fund (SOPF) proudly celebrates its 35th anniversary. Since 1989 it has been a crucial support to those affected by oil spills from ships and boats in Canadian waters. For over three decades, SOPF has provided financial resources to impacted individuals and communities, demonstrating our commitment to aiding in their recovery and resilience. Over 560 claims have been received with $28 million issued to claimants for spill prevention measures or to aid in their clean-up efforts. Over the past year, we have experienced a remarkable surge with a record-breaking 41 claims received.
