Explanatory Notes – Notices to Mariners (NOTMAR)

Geographical positions refer directly to the graduations of the largest scale Canadian Hydrographic Service 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 and Preliminary Notices to Mariners – Section 1A of Notices to Mariners
These notices are indicated by a (T) or a (P), 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. For the list of charts affected by (T) & (P) notices, please refer to the current Notices to Mariners - Monthly Summary of Temporary and Preliminary Notices publication.

Please note: In addition to the temporary and preliminary changes normally advertised as (T) & (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 and 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 and Suggestion Sheet" (fillable PDF form) and is inserted on the last page of each monthly edition of Notices to Mariners.

NOTMAR Website – Monthly Editions, Chart Corrections and Chart Patches
The NOTMAR website allows users to access the monthly publications, chart corrections, and chart patches.

Users can subscribe for free to the email notification service  to receive notifications when charts of interest are updated, including their patches, as well as when a new monthly edition becomes available online.

In addition, the monthly publication and related files to download, such as chart patches and Sailing Directions diagrams, can be obtained all together through the download of a single ZIP file.

Chart Corrections – Section 2 of Notices to Mariners
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:

elements of section 2

The last correction number is identified with the LNM/D or Last Notice to Mariners Number / Date.

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.

Note: In the case of a 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 2021. The source supply and the prices effective at the time of printing are listed.

Navigational Warnings / Notices to Shipping
The Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) 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 CCG, 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).

NAVWARNs are accessible on the applicable regional page on the CCG Navigational Warnings website at http://nis.ccg-gcc.gc.ca.

CHS is reviewing the impact of these changes with CCG and together are preparing an action plan on the issuing of chart revisions.

For further information, contact your regional NAVWARN Issuing Desk.

Canadian Hydrographic Service – Notices to Mariners for Changes in Buoy Shape

(Recurrent publication of notice *906/20, originally published in the Notices to Mariners – Monthly Eastern Edition 09/2020 publication.)

As part of the CHS Digital Transformation and for the sake of economy, CHS will no longer systematically issue Notices to Mariners (NTM) for buoy shape changes only. These changes will, however, be applied to electronic navigation charts (ENCs) where applicable. The paper and raster versions will be updated during the New Edition process.

Gulf of St. Lawrence – Protection of the North Atlantic Right Whale

(Recurrent publication of notice *405/21, originally published in the Notices to Mariners – Monthly Eastern Edition 04/2021 publication.)

Purpose

This notice describes the speed restriction zones that vessels must follow in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
The Government of Canada has established these zones to reduce the risk of vessel collisions with North Atlantic right whales (NARW).

Context

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 zones 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 outlining the speed restrictions are considered to be Notices to Shipping, which vessels must follow. The Interim Order for the Protection of North Atlantic Right Whales (Eubalaena Glacialis) in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, 2021 enables the issuance of Navigational Warnings (NAVWARNs) imposing speed restrictions or navigation restrictions.

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 broadcast through NAVWARNs, which are published by the CCG’s Marine Communications and Traffic Services (MCTS) Centres.

Changes to speed restriction zones and measures
Based on consultations with industry and on scientific data, changes to the speed restriction zones will be effective from April 28, 2021, while the restricted area will be implemented based on whale presence:

For a second consecutive year, a trial voluntary slowdown 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 will be implemented at the beginning and end of the North Atlantic right whale season.

Again this year, a restricted area located in and near Shediac Valley. The location and size are both based on historical data of North Atlantic right whale aggregations, while the triggering mechanism is based on in-season detections.

As of this year, the 36.57 m (20-fathom) shallow water protocol will apply to all commercial fishing vessels.

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

Speed Restriction Measures for 2021

These restrictions will be in effect from April 28 to November 15, 2021.

Exemption

The following exemption will apply to all measures:

A vessel in distress or providing assistance to a person or a vessel in distress.

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.

Exceptions

Air cushion vessels operated by or on behalf of the Government of Canada that are engaged in ice-clearing activities from April to June in and around Chaleur Bay are exempted when in operation.

36.57 m (20-fathom) shallow water protocol

Vessels engaged in any commercial fishing activity may proceed at a safe operational speed in waters not more than 36.57 m (20 fathom) deep.

If a notice to fish harvesters states that at least one right whale has been detected within a static zone in waters that are not more than 36.57 m deep, the 10 knots speed limit will apply to all vessels above 13 m in length overall (LOA) 15 days after the day on which the notice comes into effect.

If a new notice to fish harvesters with the same statement is published or broadcast during the last seven days of the 15-day period, the speed limit will continue to apply for a further 15 days after the day on which the new notice comes into effect.

48⁰ 00’ N 061⁰ 00’ W
48⁰ 10.5’ N 061⁰ 00’ W


When the Government of Canada detects a North Atlantic right whale in a dynamic shipping zone:

All vessels will be notified via a NAVWARN; and
Vessels above 13 m in length overall (LOA) 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. The speed restriction may be extended for an additional 15 days from the date that a new NAVWARN comes into effect, if North Atlantic right whales continue to be detected during the last 7 days of the 15-day slowdown period.

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 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 28 to June 29, 2021; and

are allowed to proceed at a safe operational speed from June 30 to November 15, 2021, 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 for an additional 15 days from the date that a new NAVWARN comes into effect, if North Atlantic right whales continue to be detected during the last 7 days of the 15-day slowdown period.

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 implemented in and near the Shediac Valley and will come into force once 80% of the restricted area is closed to fishing for the season as per the Department of Fisheries and Oceans’s right whale closure protocol. The restricted area will be lifted once the North Atlantic right whale detections decrease in the restricted area or at the latest on August 31, 2021.

The size and location of the area is determined based on historical detection data of North Atlantic right whales. All necessary details can be found in the Interim Order. Triggering and lifting of the restricted area will be communicated to mariners through a NAVWARN and notice to fish harvesters.

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

avoid the area unless they are part of the exceptions listed in the Interim Order;
transit the area at a speed not exceeding 8.0 knots over the ground if they are included in the exception list.

The following exceptions will apply to the restricted area. Vessels listed can travel through the area at not more than 8.0 knots over the ground:

A vessel being used for commercial fishing;
A vessel being used for fishing under the authority of a licence issued under the Aboriginal Communal Fishing Licences Regulations;
A vessel being used for research purposes on behalf of the Government of Canada
A vessel being used as part of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans’ Marine Mammal Response Program to assist a marine mammal or sea turtle in distress or to access or retrieve a deceased marine mammal or sea turtle;
A vessel authorized by the Government of Canada to retrieve or identify the location of abandoned or lost fishing gear;
A vessel involved in pollution response operations;
A vessel avoiding immediate or unforeseen danger;
A vessel being used to conduct geophysical or geotechnical surveys or related activities as part of a project, which the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans has reviewed, to lay electrical or communication cables;
A vessel involved in research relating to right whales as part of a project that has received funding from the Government of Canada.

The following vessels can travel through the restricted area at a speed over 8.0 knots, but below 10.0 knots over the ground as required by the static speed restriction zone:

A vessel being used by an employee of the Government of Canada or peace officer who is performing their duties.

The location and size of the restricted area will not be modified during the season.

Coordinates for the restricted area:

48˚31.8’ N 063˚39.6’ W
48˚24.72’ N 063˚17.88’ W
47˚18.84’ N 064˚10.8’ W
47˚27.18’ N 064˚30.72’ W

Inclement weather exception

Mariners will be notified in advance via a NAVWARN should the speed restriction status change in any zone or area, due to inclement weather.

Within any zone or area that is not subject to a speed restriction due to adverse weather conditions for example, 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.

*Non-excepted vessels are still prohibited from transiting through the restricted area.

Trial voluntary slowdown in Cabot Strait

To coincide with the North Atlantic right whales entering and exiting the Gulf of St. Lawrence in large numbers, a trial voluntary slowdown is being put in place for the second year in Cabot Strait from April 28 to June 29, 2021, and from September 29 to November 15, 2021.

During these periods, vessels above 13 m in length (LOA) are requested to voluntarily reduce their speed so as to not exceed 10.0 knots over the ground.

Voluntary slowdown zone coordinates:

48° 10.5’ N 061° 00’ W

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 restrictions, the NAVWARN(s) 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 mandatory speed restriction zones; and/or

at 10 nautical miles prior to entering the mandatory speed restriction zones

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, NOTMAR 208(T)/2021 refers. These aids notify mariners of a dynamic shipping zone and/or a seasonal management area subject to a speed restriction.
Each zone is delimited by four to six 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 method of communicating this information.

Compliance and enforcement

Vessels must comply with the Interim Orders made pursuant to the Canada Shipping Act, 2001, and any NAVWARNs broadcast and published by the Canadian Coast Guard relating to the Interim Orders, aimed at regulating the navigation for the purposes of protecting the North Atlantic right whales.
If a vessel does not comply with the Interim Orders or instructions in the NAVWARNs related to the Interim Orders, the vessel could face:

administrative monetary penalties up to a maximum of CAN $250,000; and/or

penal sanctions under the Canada Shipping Act, 2001.

If a 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:

Reason(s) 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.

Saguenay–St. Lawrence Marine Park - Beluga Whale Protection: Slowdown Area at the Mouth of the Saguenay Fjord and Area Closure at Baie Sainte-Marguerite

(Recurrent publication of notice *406/21, originally published in the Notices to Mariners – Monthly Eastern Edition 04/2021 publication.)

The Saguenay–St. Lawrence Marine Park and its surrounding area are at the heart of endangered beluga whale critical summer habitat. Marine mammal protection measures have been put in place in accordance with the Marine Activities in the Saguenay–St. Lawrence Marine Park Regulations within the limits of the Marine Park.

However, important feeding, calving and rearing areas for beluga whales require greater protection to ensure the recovery of the species. The portion of the Saguenay situated between the mouth of the Fjord and Baie Sainte-Marguerite is one of the areas most used by females and their young from May to October. The mouth of the Saguenay is known as a feeding ground and Baie Sainte-Marguerite as a calving and rearing area.

In order to prevent collisions with beluga whales, a compulsory 15-knot slowdown area is in effect from May 1st to October 31st at the mouth of the Saguenay. To ensure tranquility for female belugas and their young during the critical calving period, access to Baie Sainte-Marguerite is prohibited to all vessels from June 21st to September 21st, except for special authorizations (see description below).

For safety reasons, the slowdown area measure at the mouth of the Saguenay Fjord does not apply to cargo ships (see the monthly edition of Notices to Mariners from May to October for voluntary protection measures in the St. Lawrence Estuary). An enhanced vigilance is, however, recommended to all navigators between the mouth of the Saguenay Fjord and Baie Sainte-Marguerite for the protection of beluga whales.
For more information on the Saguenay–St. Lawrence Marine Park, see notice 5C of the Notices to Mariners Annual Edition 2021 or visit marinepark.qc.ca.

REGULATORY PROTECTION MEASURES — BELUGA WHALE

Entire Marine Park Territory:

When beluga whales are less than half a nautical mile (926 metres) from a motorized vessel, the vessel must maintain a speed of between 5 and 10 knots.
All vessels, including human-powered vessels (kayaks and canoes), must continue to move forward and maintain their heading.

All vessels must maintain a minimum distance of 400 metres from beluga whales at all times.

For more information concerning the regulations, consult: marinepark.ca/protect/#regulations.

Mouth of the Saguenay Fjord (Figure 1) — Slowdown Area (area crosshatched in red):

Maximum speed at the mouth of the Saguenay between buoys S7 and S8 and the ferry docks between Baie-Sainte-Catherine and Tadoussac is 15 knots from May 1st to October 31st.

Baie Sainte-Marguerite (Figure 2) — Area Closure (red area):

From June 21st to September 21st, vessels must not enter the red area, which follows a line between Cap Nord-Ouest and Cap Sainte-Marguerite.

Special authorizations are granted only for kayaks, canoes and recreational fishermen who must travel without stopping along a corridor within 10 metres of the shore or in shallow areas.

VOLUNTARY PROTECTION MEASURES

Baie Sainte-Marguerite sector (Figure 2) — Transit Area (area crosshatched in yellow):

From June 21st to September 21st, navigation in this area is recommended at a speed of between 5 and 10 knots without stopping.

The purpose of this transit area is to favour respect of the Marine Activities in the Saguenay–St. Lawrence Marine Park Regulations, since beluga whales are often present in the Baie Sainte-Marguerite sector.

INFORMATION

All incidents, including collisions with whales, must be reported without delay by dialling 1-866-508-9888. For any other situation concerning a marine mammal that is either dead or in trouble, contact the emergency network at 1-877-722-5346, or use VHF channel 16.

Figure 2

Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park and Surrounding Waters – Whale Protection

(Recurrent publication of notice *407/21, originally published in the Notices to Mariners – Monthly Eastern Edition 04/2021 publication.)

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 2021.

VOLUNTARY PROTECTION MEASURES

Provisional measures in effect from May 1 to October 31, 2021. 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.

REPLACE WITH THE FOLLOWING:

1.1.3Iridium SafetyCast Service

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) and the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) announced the establishment of the Iridium SafetyCast Service as a recognized mobile satellite service in the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS).

1.1.3.1NAVAREAs XVII and XVIII

Effective October 1st 2020, an Iridium SafetyCast Service for broadcasting navigational warnings in the English language will be declared to be “On Trial” for Canada’s Arctic NAVAREAs XVII and XVIII.
During the Iridium SafetyCast “On Trial” phase, navigational warnings will be broadcast in accordance with the Revised Joint IMO/IHO/WMO Maritime Safety Information Manual on an intermittent and test basis. The “On Trial” phase is a test and evaluation stage which is necessary to ensure navigational warnings are processed and promulgated in a timely and appropriate manner.
NAVAREAs XVII and XVIII will broadcast Iridium SafetyCast messages to vessels with an approved SafetyCast receiver. On vessels with Iridium GMDSS terminals installed, mariners are advised to check their manufacturer’s operation manuals to obtain information on the setting of their SafetyCast receivers to receive relevant SafetyCast messages.
During this period, the Canadian Coast Guard will not guarantee service availability.

Determination when NAVAREAs XVII and XVIII are ready to declare “Operational” status will come at a later date and will be announced through a subsequent Notice to Mariners.

1.1.3.2METAREAs XVII and XVIII, and the Hudson Bay Area of METAREA IV

Effective June 1st 2021, an Iridium SafetyCast Service for broadcasting of meteorological warnings, meteorological forecasts and ice information in the English language will be declared to be “On Trial” for Canada’s Arctic METAREAs XVII and XVIII, and the Hudson Bay area of METAREA IV.
During the Iridium SafetyCast “On Trial” phase, meteorological warnings, meteorological forecasts and ice information will be broadcast in accordance with the Revised Joint IMO/IHO/WMO Maritime Safety Information Manual on an intermittent and test basis. The “On Trial” phase is a test and evaluation stage which is necessary to ensure meteorological warnings, meteorological forecasts and ice information are processed and promulgated in a timely and appropriate manner.
METAREAs XVII and XVIII will broadcast Iridium SafetyCast messages, including messages for the Hudson Bay area of METAREA IV, to vessels with an approved SafetyCast receiver. On vessels with Iridium GMDSS terminals installed, mariners are advised to check their manufacturer’s operation manuals to obtain information on the setting of their SafetyCast receivers to receive relevant SafetyCast messages.

During this period, Environment and Climate Change Canada will not guarantee service availability.
Determination when METAREAs XVII and XVIII, and the Hudson Bay area of METAREA IV, are ready to declare “Operational” status will come at a later date and will be announced through a subsequent Notice to Mariners.

ATL 102 — Newfoundland, East and South Coasts, Second Edition, 2008 —

Chapter 2 — After paragraph 161

Insert:161.1 A helipad used by large helicopters servicing the offshore oil and gas industry is situated close west of the Public wharf at Long Pond. The helipad is used as an alternate landing site when St. John’s International Airport is inaccessible due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. The normal approach by helicopters is from NW thru NE of the helipad. Larger vessels or platforms with an air draft exceeding 46 m (150 ft) at anchor in the immediate area may pose a safety hazard to these aircraft on the final portion of their approach in restricted visibility and low ceiling conditions of less than 305 m (1000 ft). Though voluntary and in the interest of safety, large vessels meeting or exceeding the previously described criteria should contact Cougar Helicopters at telephone 709-758-4810 or email flightfollowing@cougar.ca if they plan on anchoring or are at anchor in the area bounded by the following coordinates:

47⁰ 30.85’N, 52⁰ 59.15’W
47⁰ 31.68’N, 53⁰ 00.98’W
