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 Tides 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) before the chart action and in the 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. Listing 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 navigational aids 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 Notices to Mariners -  Mariners are advised that only the most critical changes that directly affect safety to navigation are issued in Chart Corrections - Section 2. 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 height of a light may not result in the production of a chart correction, in Notices to Mariners,  but may result in a List of Light, Buoys and Fog Signals  correction.

In case of discrepancy between information provided on CHS charts related to aids to navigation, and the List of Light 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 & Publications is published in Notice No. 14  of the Notices to Mariners Annual Edition April 2011. 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 numeric 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 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.

 

elements of section 2

The last correction number is identified with the LNM/D  or Last Notice to Mariners Number / Date. This number is expressed in either old notice number format (ex.: 594/99) or in day-month-year format which is the date known as the weekly chart correction date shown in the above diagram as item (8).

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 (Broadcast and Written) by the Canadian Coast Guard and are 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.

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.

For further information contact your local Regional Notices to Shipping (NOTSHIP) issuing authorities.

SAFETY AND GENERAL INFORMATION

CANADIAN HYDROGRAPHIC SERVICE - ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING CANADIAN HYDROGRAPHIC SERVICE CHART PATCHES.

Colour Web Patches are free to the mariner, and given the quality of many printers, should reproduce well. They will be available in real time all around the world.

CHS welcomes your feedback on this service at chsinfo@dfo-mpo.gc.ca

CANADIAN HYDROGRAPHIC SERVICE - CUMULATIVE CHART CORRECTIONS.

The cumulative Notices to Mariners corrections for charts can now be accessed at

www.notmar.gc.ca/search/notmar-eng.php

CANADIAN HYDROGRAPHIC SERVICE - Current chart edition dates.

CHART EDITIONS

The three terms described below are used to indicate the publication status of Canadian charts.

NEW CHART - "NEWCHT"

The first publication of a Canadian chart embracing an area not previously charted to the scale shown, or embracing an area different from any existing Canadian chart.

NEW EDITION - "NEWEDT"

A new issue of an existing chart containing amendments essential to navigation in addition to those issued in Notices to Mariners and making existing editions obsolete.

REPRINTS

A new issue of the current edition of a chart incorporating no amendments of navigational significance other than those previously promulgated in Notices to Mariners. It may also contain amendments from other sources provided they are not essential to navigation. Previous printings of the current edition remain in force

The current chart edition dates can be accessed at www.chs-shc.gc.ca/charts-cartes/paper-papier/index-eng.asp

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) http://www.ccg-gcc.gc.ca/Marine-Communications/Homeand Notices to Mariners (NOTMAR)http://www.notmar.gc.ca/ PART 3 on a monthly basis for updated information and potential changes to contact information and marine broadcast schedules.
