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, respectively. 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 publication.

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 2020. The source supply and the prices effective at the time of printing are listed. For current chart edition dates, please refer to the following website: www.chs-shc.gc.ca/charts-cartes/paper-papier/index-eng.asp


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 NAVIGATIONAL WARNINGS / NOTICES TO SHIPPING

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

These changes are advertised as Navigational Warnings, formerly called Notices to ShippingFootnote 1, that are 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 Navigational Warnings (NAVWARNs) should be kept until superseded by Notices to Mariners or through revised charts issued by the Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS).

Navigational Warnings are accessible on the applicable regional page on the Canadian Coast Guard e-Navigation Maritime Information Portal at http://www.marinfo.gc.ca/e-nav.

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

*403GULF OF ST. LAWRENCE – PROTECTION OF THE NORTH ATLANTIC RIGHT WHALE

Due to changing migration patterns of North Atlantic right whales and their increased presence in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, the Government of Canada has established seasonal speed restrictions in specific zones. These speed restrictions are defined as “static zones”, “dynamic shipping zones”, “seasonal management areas”, a trial “voluntary speed restriction zone’’ and a “restricted area”. See the map below for details.

Note: Navigational Warnings with these speed restrictions are considered to be Notices to Shipping, which vessels must follow as per the Interim Order Protecting North Atlantic Right Whales (Eubalaena Glacialis) in the Gulf of St Lawrence.

Speed restriction zones are described in monthly Notices to Mariners (NOTMARs), which are published by the Canadian Coast Guard (CCG). The status of these zones are broadcasted through Navigational Warnings (NAVWARNs), which are published by the CCG’s Marine Communications and Traffic Services (MCTS) Centres.

Changes to speed restriction zones

Based on consultations with industry and on scientific data, changes to the speed restriction zones will be effective from April 28th, 2020, while the restricted area will be implemented at a later date:

Portions of the static zones located north and south of dynamic shipping zone E are now changed to seasonal management area 1 (north of dynamic shipping zone E) and seasonal management area 2 (south of dynamic shipping zone E).
A trial voluntary speed restriction of 10.0 knots over the ground spanning from Cabot Strait (a line running from Cape North NS to Cape Ray NL) to the eastern edge of dynamic shipping zone E, at the beginning and end of the season.
A restricted area in or near Shediac Valley (the effective date and exact location of the area is to be determined and will be based on the observed distribution of the whales. This information will be communicated to mariners via navigational warning and notice to fish harvesters).

Please refer to the latest NAVWARN issued by the CCG-MCTS for all speed restrictions currently in effect.

Speed Restriction Measures for 2020

These restrictions will be in effect from April 28 to November 15, 2020.

Static zones

In the static zones, all vessels above 13 m in length overall (LOA) must proceed at a speed of not more than 10.0 knots over the ground.

Coordinates for the northern static zone:

50° 20’ N 065° 00’ W

49° 13’ N 065° 00’ W

48° 40’ N 064° 13’ W

48° 40’ N 062° 40’ W

48° 03’ N 061° 07.5’ W

48° 00’ N 061° 00’ W

49° 04’ N 061° 00’ W

49° 04’ N 062° 00’ W

49° 43’ N 063° 00’ W

50° 20’ N 063° 00’ W


Coordinates for the southern static zone:

48° 40’ N 065° 00’ W

48° 40’ N 062° 40’ W

48° 03’ N 061° 07,5’ W

47° 10’ N 062° 30’ W

47° 10’ N 065° 00’ W


Mariners will be notified ahead via a NAVWARN should the speed restriction status change, due to inclement weather.

Within any static zone that is not subject to a speed restriction, mariners may proceed at a safe operational speed. Mariners are however encouraged to take into consideration the potential for their vessel striking North Atlantic right whales when considering a “safe operational speed” during navigation.

Dynamic shipping zones

There are five dynamic shipping zones (DSZ) located in the routeing systems north and south of Anticosti Island: A, B, C, D and E

Coordinates for the dynamic shipping zones:

Zone A

49° 41’ N 065° 00’ W

49° 20’ N 065° 00’ W

49° 11’ N 064° 00’ W

49° 22’ N 064° 00’ W


Zone B

49° 22’ N 064° 00’ W

49° 11’ N 064° 00’ W

48° 48’ N 063° 00’ W

48° 48’ N 063° 00’ W

48° 24’ N 062° 00’ W

48° 35’ N 062° 00’ W


Zone D

50° 16’ N 064° 00’ W

50° 00’ N 064° 00’ W

49° 56’ N 063° 00’ W

50° 16’ N 063° 00’ W


Zone E

48° 35’ N 062° 00’ W
48° 24’ N 062° 00’ W
48° 03’ N 061° 07.5’ W
47° 58.1’ N 061° 03.5’ W
48° 00’ N 061° 00’ W
48° 10.5’ N 061° 00’ W


If the Government of Canada does not detect North Atlantic right whales in these zones, vessels may transit through them at a safe operational speed.

When the Government of Canada detects a North Atlantic right whale in a dynamic shipping zone, vessels above 13 m in length overall (LOA):

will be notified through a NAVWARN; and
must proceed at a speed of not more than 10.0 knots over the ground within that zone.

Speed restrictions in the dynamic shipping zones

The detection of North Atlantic right whales in one or more dynamic shipping zone(s), will trigger a speed restriction in the concerned zone(s). The speed restriction in the dynamic shipping zone(s) will be in effect for 15 days from the date of issuance of the NAVWARN. We may extend a speed restriction past the 15 days if North Atlantic right whales continue to be detected.

When a NAVWARN is issued implementing a speed restriction in one or more dynamic shipping zone(s), vessels above 13 m in length (LOA) must not exceed a speed of 10.0 knots over the ground.

Within any zone that is not subject to a speed restriction, mariners may proceed at a safe operational speed. Mariners are however encouraged to take into consideration the potential for their vessel striking North Atlantic right whales when considering a “safe operational speed” during navigation.

Seasonal management areas

Seasonal management area 1 (SMA-1) and seasonal management area 2 (SMA-2) are speed restriction areas located north and south of dynamic shipping zone E, respectively.

Within seasonal management areas, vessels above 13 m in length (LOA):

must restrict their speed so as not to exceed 10.0 knots over the ground from April 28th to June 30th, 2020; and
are allowed to proceed at safe operational speed from July 1st to November 15th, 2020, unless a North Atlantic right whale is detected. If a whale is detected, a speed restriction of 10.0 knots over the ground will be triggered for 15 days from the date of issuance of the NAVWARN. The speed restriction may be extended past the 15 days if North Atlantic right whales continue to be detected.

Coordinates for the SMA-1:

49° 04’ N 062° 00’ W

49° 04’ N 061° 00’ W

48° 10.5’ N 061° 00’ W

48° 35’ N 062° 00’ W


Coordinates for the SMA-2:

48° 24’ N 062° 00’ W
48° 03’ N 061° 07.5’ W
47° 58.1’ N 061° 03.5’ W
47° 26.69’ N 062° 00’ W

Restricted area

In the summer months, an important proportion of the total North Atlantic right whale population gathers for feeding and surface activity near the Shediac Valley. Since this makes the North Atlantic right whale more susceptible to vessel collisions, a mandatory restricted area will be put in place in or near Shediac Valley. The effective date and exact location of the area is to be determined. An Interim Order will come into force in early summer and will provide the necessary details. This information will also be communicated to mariners through navigational warnings and notices to fish harvesters.

Vessels above 13 m in length (LOA) will be required to:

avoid the area; or
if required to navigate through this area, reduce their speed as to not exceed 8.0 knots over the ground.

The restricted area will be determined in collaboration with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. Once established, the location and dimension of the restricted area will not be modified.

Trial voluntary speed restriction in Cabot Strait

To coincide with the North Atlantic right whales entering and exiting the Gulf of St. Lawrence, we are putting in place a trial voluntary speed restriction in Cabot Strait from April 28th to June 15th, 2020, and from October 1st to November 15th, 2020.

During this period, vessels above 13 m in length (LOA) will be asked to voluntarily reduce their speed so as to not exceed 10.0 knots over the ground.
Outside of the restriction period, vessels will be able to proceed at safe operational speeds.

Voluntary speed restriction zone coordinates:

48° 10.5’ N 061° 00’ W

This map is for visual representation only and is not to be used for navigation or enforcement.

NAVWARN broadcasts

The CCG-MCTS issues and publishes NAVWARNs:

by radio broadcast; and
online at Canada’s Maritime Information Portal and its Navigational Warnings site.

Mariners must ensure they have accurate and up-to-date information about the protection of the North Atlantic right whale, as in all applicable NOTMARs and NAVWARNs.

For the North Atlantic right whale speed restriction, the NAVWARN that is currently in effect will be provided to vessels subject to the Vessel Traffic Services Zone Regulations or the Eastern Canada Vessel Traffic Services Zone Regulations:

Outbound vessels

at Calling-in-Point 10 (St-Laurent); or
upon a departure downstream from the Quebec pilot station (including the Saguenay River, Chaleur Bay, Miramichi Bay, etc.)

Inbound vessels

when a clearance to enter Canadian waters is granted

Vessels in transit

at the last reporting point prior to entering the speed restriction area; and/or
at 10 nautical miles prior to entering the speed restriction zone

For those vessels not subject to the above-mentioned regulations, vessel operators are required to monitor broadcasts by the Canadian Coast Guard’s Marine Communications and Traffic Services (MCTS) network for the most up to date information. For marine radio frequencies and broadcast times, information may be found in the Radio Aids to Marine Navigation publication.

Aids to navigation

The Canadian Coast Guard is currently testing virtual Automatic Identification System (AIS) aids to navigation (AIS AtoN) in specific areas. These aids notify mariners of a dynamic shipping zone subject to a speed restriction, per NOTMAR 819(T)/2016.

Each dynamic shipping zone is delimited by four virtual AIS AtoN, which can be displayed on a ship’s navigation equipment, such as

Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS);
Electronic Chart System (ECS);
RADAR;
Minimum Keyboard Display (MKD); and
Electronic Nautical Chart (ENC).

The Canadian Coast Guard broadcasts the virtual AIS AtoN only when a speed restriction is in effect in one or more testing zones.

Mariners must select the virtual AIS AtoN symbol to view a message such as “SectA1 Spd Lim 10 kt.” This message refers to a speed restriction in effect for a specific zone.

Note: This system is not the primary way we communicate this information.

Compliance and enforcement

You must comply with the NAVWARNs broadcasted and published by the Canadian Coast Guard related to any Interim Order made pursuant to the Canada Shipping Act, 2001, aimed at regulating the navigation for the purposes of protecting the North Atlantic right whales.

If you do not comply with instructions in the NAVWARNs or in the Interim Orders, you could face:

administrative monetary penalties up to a maximum of CAN $250,000; and/or
penal sanctions under the Canada Shipping Act, 2001.

If your vessel appears to have violated the speed restriction, Transport Canada Marine Safety inspectors will review all information provided through AIS and seek an explanation from the master.

No exemptions to the speed restriction will be granted in advance. However, if a deviation from the speed restrictions is necessary for safety reasons, the following information must be entered into the bridge logbook:

Reasons for deviation
Speed at which vessel is operated
Latitude and longitude at time of deviation
Time and duration of deviation
Master of the vessel shall sign and date the bridge logbook entry

For any deviation, Transport Canada will review and consider reasons such as

Navigating to ensure vessel safety;
Weather conditions;
Force majeure (unforeseeable circumstances); and
Responding to emergencies.

*404SAGUENAY-ST. LAWRENCE MARINE PARK AND SURROUNDING WATERS – WHALE PROTECTION

The waters in and around the Saguenay–St. Lawrence Marine Park are well known for the resident endangered beluga population and the wide diversity of whales that migrate there to feed, particularly between April and November.

REGULATORY PROTECTION MEASURES

All whale species that are found in the St. Lawrence are protected under the Marine Mammal Regulations, pursuant to the Fisheries Act. Within the boundaries of the Marine Park, specific measures are set out in the Marine Activities in the Saguenay–St. Lawrence Marine Park Regulations, pursuant to the establishment of the Saguenay–St. Lawrence Marine Park Act. Any collision with a marine mammal within the Marine Park must immediately be reported to a park warden at 1-866-508-9888. For collisions that occur outside the Marine Park or for any situation involving a marine mammal that is dead or in trouble, contact the emergency network at 1-877-722-5346 or on VHF channel 16.

For more information on the Saguenay–St. Lawrence Marine Park, see notice 5C of the Notices to Mariners Annual Edition 2020.

VOLUNTARY PROTECTION MEASURES

Provisional measures in effect from May 1 to October 31, 2020. See map at the end of this notice.

These measures apply to merchant vessels and cruise ships between Pointe à Boisvert and Cap de la Tête au Chien to prevent collisions with whales. These measures should only be taken when they will not jeopardize navigational safety.

Caution area (yellow area): To reduce the risk of collisions with whales that can be present anywhere in this area, heightened vigilance of navigators is critical. Posting a lookout is recommended in order to increase the chances of seeing the whales and thus taking necessary measures to avoid them. If bypassing the whales is not possible, slow down and wait for the animals to move away to a distance greater than 400 metres (0.215 nautical miles) before resuming original speed. It is more difficult to see the animals at night therefore increased caution is recommended.

Slow down to 10 knots or less area (red area): To reduce the risk of collisions with whales in this feeding area, it is recommended that vessels slow down to a maximum speed through the water of 10 knots and post a lookout. It is further recommended to remain in the Laurentian Channel to the north of Île Rouge to minimize the impact of noise in a sensitive area south of this island, which is highly frequented by herds of beluga whales composed of females and young.

Area to be avoided (hatched red area): To reduce noise and the risk of collisions with whales, vessels should avoid transiting through this area which is highly frequented by blue whales, an endangered species. If the area cannot be avoided, slow down to a speed through the water of 10 knots or less.

Protecting the North Atlantic right whale:
New speed restriction measures in the Gulf of St. Lawrence

Due to changing migration of North Atlantic right whales and their increased presence in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, the Government of Canada has established seasonal speed restrictions of not more than 10.0 knots in specific zones for all vessels above 13 metres in length. These restrictions combine “static zones” and “dynamic speed” sectors. Please refer to the Notices to Mariners Special Edition monthly editions for coordinates and additional details and consult WhaleMap for the latest right whale observations: https://whalemap.ocean.dal.ca/.

Transport Canada inspectors, with assistance from the Canadian Coast Guard’s Marine Communications and Traffic Services, will enforce this precautionary measure. Failure to comply will result in an administrative monetary penalty of up to $25,000 and/or penal sanctions under the Canada Shipping Act, 2001.
