EXPLANATORY NOTES

Geographical positions refer directly to the graduations of the largest scale Canadian Hydrographic chart unless otherwise indicated.

Bearings refer to the true compass and are measured clockwise from 000° (North) clockwise to 359°; those relating to lights are from seaward.

Visibility of lights is that in clear weather.

Depths - The units used for soundings (metres, fathoms or feet) are stated in the title of each chart.

Elevations are normally given above Higher High Water, Large Tide unless otherwise indicated.

Distances may be calculated as follows:

1 nautical mile = 1,852 metres (6,076.1 feet)
1 statute mile = 1,609.3 metres (5,280 feet)
1 metre = 3.28 feet

Temporary & Preliminary Notices are indicated by a (T) or a (P) in Section 1. Please note that Nautical charts are not amended by the Canadian Hydrographic Service for Temporary (T) and Preliminary (P) Notices. It is recommended that mariners chart these corrections in pencil. The list of charts affected by Temporary and Preliminary Notices are revised and promulgated quarterly in Section 1 of the Monthly Edition.

Please note that, in addition to the temporary and preliminary changes normally advertised as (T) and (P) Notices, there are a few permanent changes to aids to navigation that have been advertised as Preliminary Notices to Mariners while charts are being updated for new editions.

Marine Information Report & Suggestion Sheet
Mariners are requested to notify the responsible authorities when new or suspected dangers to navigation are discovered, changes observed in aids to navigation or corrections to publications are seen to be necessary. Such communications can be made using the Marine Information Report & Suggestion Sheet inserted on the last page of each monthly edition of Notices to Mariners.

Canadian Hydrographic Service - Information Published in Section 2 of Notices to Mariners
Mariners are advised that only the most critical changes that directly affect safety to navigation are issued in Section 2 – Chart Corrections. This limitation is required to ensure that charts remain as clear and easy to read as possible. As a result, mariners may see minor discrepancies of a non-critical nature between information in official publications. For example, a small change in the nominal range or focal height of a light may not result in the production of a chart correction in Notices to Mariners,  but may result in a correction in the List of Lights, Buoys and Fog Signals.

In case of discrepancy between information provided on CHS charts relating to aids to navigation, and the List of Lights Buoys and Fog Signals publication, the latter shall be deemed as containing the most up-to-date information

Canadian Nautical Charts & Publications
A source list of Canadian nautical charts and publications is published in Notice No. 14  of the Notices to Mariners Annual Edition 2017. The source supply and the prices effective at the time of printing are listed. For current chart edition dates refer to the following web site: http://www.chs-shc.gc.ca/charts-cartes/paper-papier/index-eng.asp


NOTE: Cette publication est aussi disponible en français.

CHART CORRECTIONS - SECTION 2

Corrections to nautical charts will be listed in numerical order by chart number. Each chart correction listed applies only to that particular chart. Related charts, if any, will have their own specific correction listed separately.

Users should also refer to CHS Chart 1: Symbols, Abbreviations and Terms for additional information pertaining to the correction of charts.

The illustration below describes the elements that will comprise a typical Section 2 chart correction.

ADVISORY NOTICES TO SHIPPING (WRITTEN AND BROADCAST)

The Canadian Coast Guard is implementing a number of changes to the aids to navigation system in Canada.

These changes are advertised as Notices to Shipping (Written and Broadcast) by the Canadian Coast Guard, and are then followed up with Notices to Mariners, then charts are updated by hand correction, reprints or new editions.

Mariners are advised that all relevant Written Notices to Shipping should be kept until superseded by Notices to Mariners or through revised charts issued by the Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS).

Written Notices to Shipping are available on the Canadian Coast Guard website at: www.ccg-gcc.gc.ca/eng/CCG/NOTSHIP.

The Canadian Hydrographic Service is reviewing the impact of these changes with the Canadian Coast Guard and together we are preparing an action plan on the issuing of chart revisions.

CANADIAN HYDROGRAPHIC SERVICE - PRINT ON DEMAND CHARTS - CARE AND USE
Background

By providing nautical charts to the public, the goal of the Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS) is to provide services for safe navigation in a fiscally responsible manner. As a result, CHS continues to expand its portfolio of nautical paper charts that are printed using Print On Demand (POD) technology. These charts are easily recognized by their whiter paper and the coloured logo of the Canadian Hydrographic Service. This new technology enables CHS to print charts in a more efficient manner while enhancing chart content through being able to quickly add new and important information. POD technology provides customers with up-to-date charts without the historical hand-drawn corrections or glued-on patches. Additionally, this technology eliminates out-of-stock situations which arise with the traditional printing and warehousing methods. In the event of a national emergency, CHS can respond to the appropriate authorities with best available information very quickly.

Care of Your POD Chart

CHS encourages its customers to handle the POD charts more carefully than the traditional lithographic charts. When plotting information on POD charts, use HB pencils and apply limited pressure. Testing has suggested that an Indian gum eraser is more effective than alternatives when used on the product. This eraser is also suitable for charts printed using lithographic processes.

CANADIAN HYDROGRAPHIC SERVICE - TRANSPORT CANADA NAVIGATION SAFETY - ECDIS

Mariners are advised that ECDIS may not display some isolated shoal depths when operating in "base or standard display" mode. Route planning and monitoring alarms for these shoal depths may not always be activated. To ensure safe navigation and to confirm that a planned route is clear of such dangers, mariners should visually inspect the planned route and any deviations from it using ECDIS configured to display "all data". The automated voyage planning check function should not be solely relied upon.

UPDATE TO CONSOLIDATION OF MARINE COMMUNICATIONS AND TRAFFIC SERVICES (MCTS) CENTRES.

The Canadian Coast Guard is modernizing and consolidating its Marine Communications and Traffic Services Centres. Clients will continue to receive the high-quality service they have come to expect.

Once complete, there will be a total of 12 MCTS Centres strategically located across the country. Additional information pertaining to this project will be advertised to clients by all available means.

Western Region

Comox MCTS will consolidate to Victoria MCTS in Winter/Spring 2016

The new technology will increase efficiency permitting employees to have a greater ability to focus on the safety services they provide to mariners. Mariners are encouraged to visit the Radio Aids to Marine Navigation (RAMN), www.ccg-gcc.gc.ca/Marine-Communications/Home and Notices to Mariners (NOTMAR), www.notmar.gc.ca PART 3 on a monthly basis for updated information and potential changes to contact information and marine broadcast schedules.

CANADIAN HYDROGRAPHIC SERVICE – ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING TIDAL INFORMATION TABLES ON CHARTS.

Mariners are advised that the tidal levels listed in the 2016 edition of canadian tide and current tables, volumes 2 and 3 have been updated. This revision is aimed to get more precise tidal predictions in time and height. this will result in corrections to the tidal information table shown on charts. These corrections will be published in 2016, through notices to mariners.

*819(T) AUTOMATIC IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM (AIS).

AIS Application-Specific Messages (ASM) and AIS AtoN

Mariners are advised that the Canadian Coast Guard will perform a test of AIS Application-Specific Messages (AIS-ASM) on the Pacific Coast from the Sand Heads meteorological/hydrological station: 49°06’21’’N 123°18’12’’W, and may extend this testing to other stations in the coming months. The test will start at the end of August and consist of broadcasting meteorological/hydrological (MET/HYDRO) data through AIS binary “Message 8”.

Although AIS was originally developed as a means for positive identification and tracking of ships, it includes functionalities to transmit binary messages such as MET/HYDRO information and other types of data. These additional functionalities of AIS may be useful to mariners to assist in onboard voyage planning.

Ships need to be equipped with a proper Class “A” AIS device for the accurate onboard display of AIS message. The IMO mandatory carriage requirement for the Class “A” AIS display Footnote 1.is the Minimum Keyboard Display (MKD) which displays the binary data in an alphanumeric form. However, as there is no current requirement for the MKD to be capable of decoding all AIS binary messages, the display and use of the ASM information may require additional hardware and/or softwareFootnote 2.

AIS Aids to Navigation (AtoN)

The International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities (IALA) defines an AtoN as:

'a device or system external to vessels that is designed and operated to enhance the safe and efficient navigation of vessels and/or vessel traffic’Footnote 3.

The primary purpose of an AIS AtoN Station is to promote and enhance safety and efficiency of navigation by one or more of the following:

  • Providing a positive and all-weather means of identification;
  • Complementing existing services (e.g. RACONS) from AtoN;
  • Transmitting accurate positions of floating AtoN;
  • Indicating if a floating AtoN is off position (monitoring the status of an AtoN);
  • Marking or delineating tracks, routes, areas, and limits;
  • Marking offshore structures;
  • Enable timely marking of new hazards (fixed or dynamic) using Virtual AIS AtoN.

The use of AIS within the marine aids to navigation service is accomplished by the broadcasting of the aids to navigation report message “Message 21”.

An AIS AtoN can be implemented in three ways, Real, Synthetic, and Virtual.
  1. Physical/real AIS AtoN: : An AIS device which is physically located on the AtoN and transmits “Message 21”.
  2. Synthetic AIS AtoN: There are 2 types of Synthetic AIS AtoN – Monitored and Predicted.
    1. Monitored: A “Message 21” is transmitted from a nearby AIS base station. The AtoN physically exists but there is no AIS device on it. A communication link is installed on the AtoN to allow the monitoring of its status.
    2. Predicted : A “Message 21” is transmitted from a nearby AIS base station. The AtoN physically exists but there is neither an AIS device on it nor a communication link. Status and position of the AtoN cannot be monitored.
  3. Virtual AIS AtoN: :A “Message 21” is transmitted from a nearby AIS base station for an AtoN that does not physically exist. The “Message 21” will clearly identify this as a virtual AIS AtoN.

Displays and Symbology

As the AIS information available to mariners will be dependent on their display system, not all transmitted information may be displayed. Mariners are encouraged to install systems that provide AIS overlay on either ECDIS or Radar, or both.

Of those vessels that are AIS equipped the various displays available can range from no display on some Class B units, through to the mandatory Class A MKD, and to a full ECDIS or Radar overlay. In the absence of an ECDIS or Radar overlay, mariners will not be able to fully utilize the AIS AtoN functionality. Also note that there is a variance in the information that can be displayed on ECDIS or Radar equipment by the different AIS manufacturers.

The symbology that may be displayed on nautical charts, display systems and the MKD is summarised below.

Nautical Charts
On nautical charts AIS AtoN are indicated by a magenta circle surrounding the existing AtoN symbol and an adjacent legend stating AIS. The font will be straight for fixed AtoN and italic for floating AtoN.
Avis au Navigateurs - système d'indentification automatique
A physical AIS AtoN provided as an overlay on ECDIS, Radar or other display systems are indicated by a diamond shape with crossed lines at the reported position of the AtoN. A physical AIS AtoN that is off position will use the same symbol but in red. A virtual AIS AtoN is indicated by a dotted line diamond shape with the crossed lines at the reported position.

The mandatory MKD is only required to display data in alphanumeric form. Some MKD are units supplemented by a small graphical display. Exact presentation will vary but this layout below would be typical of MKD displays.

Feedback on AIS - ASM
Mariners are requested to provide feedback on the AIS-ASM test bed to their applicable Regional MCTS Office.
