Transport Canada has issued Ship Safety Bulletin (SSB) 04/2024 – Guidelines to safely transport electric vehicles on Canadian ferries.  While the International Maritime Organization is developing guidance for the carriage of EVs on passenger vessels, Transport Canada strongly recommends that ferry operators use existing operational guidance and firefighting procedures targeting EVs and take steps to train crew on how to deal with these types of fires on-board their vessels.
