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.

Delete:

The Pre-arrival information (96-hour Notification - PAIR) made pursuant to the Marine Transportation Security Regulations, can now be found in Parts 3 and 4 of Radio Aids to Marine Navigation (RAMN). You can access the RAMN at the following web site: http://www.ccg-gcc.gc.ca/Communications-Marines/Home

Replace with:

Information concerning Pre-Arrival Information Report (PAIR) made pursuant to the Marine Transportation Security Regulations, can be found in Part 3 of the publication Radio Aids to Marine Navigation (RAMN).

Add to page 1, after 4) Anchorage areas (M):

5) Under keel Clearance

Add to page 5

5) Directives concerning Under Keel Clearance

In order to maximize the loading, operators and captains of wide-beam vessels and long vessels determine the minimum under keel clearance (UKC) by using the minimal authorized speed established at 7 knots in the UKC table. That constrains up bound vessels in Quebec-Montreal sector to transit during a long period with at minimum speed because of window passages restrictions. The speed between Quebec and Trois-Rivières can be influenced by the tide and the passage can be completed in 7 hours. But, Trois-Rivières and Montreal sector depends only on water levels; the vessel, not being able to go faster than 7 or 8 knots over the water (SOW) , corresponding to a speed of 5 knots over the ground (SOG) it will take 12 hours to complete the transit. Thus the vessel will cause a congestion of the system for a long period, that makes difficult to coordinate passages and safe meetings because they have to favor transits mainly during daylight and can anchor only in short time anchorages.

The hydraulic pressure on these very wide ships is important, at low speed they are less manoeuvrable and the response time is slower. When we need to push the ship to increase the pressure of water on the rudder to thwart a yaw, the ship inertia is so heavy it takes several minutes to have the wished effect. The operators and the captains should thus plan their transits at a minimum speed of 10 knots SOW , in order to reduce the transit time and allow the ship to be in the system for an acceptable and plannable time while favoring daylight passages and by ensuring a good maneuverability.

In order to ensure a safe conduct and allow the coordination of the transits in opposite directions of vessels in the Saint-Lawrence between Quebec City and Montreal, vessels with beam greater than 32.50 meters (Post-Panamax) shall:

-Conform with the under keel clearance calculation table as per notice to mariners 27C.

-When up bound to a destination upstream Quebec City, ensure to have an under keel clearance permitting a transit at a minimum speed of 10 knots on the water.

-When down bound from a locality upstream Quebec City ensure to have an under keel clearance permitting a transit at a minimum speed of 7 knots on the water

Notwithstanding the preceding, all vessels should be capable to reduce their speed if necessary in order to allow the coordination of the meetings between ships and conform to the voluntary measures of speed reduction.
