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.

Explanatory Notes – Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS)

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. For current chart edition dates, please refer to the following website: www.chs-shc.gc.ca/charts-cartes/paper-papier/index-eng.asp

Explanatory Notes – Marine Communications and Traffic Services (MCTS)

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 – Canadian Tide and Current Tables – Printing to be Discontinued

(Recurrent publication of notice *904/20, originally published in the Notices to Mariners – Monthly Western Edition 09/2020 publication.)

Due to the availability of the Canadian Tide and Current Tables as viewable and printable PDF files on charts.gc.ca for each complete volume and additional information in different formats (predictions, observations in tables, and graphics) on tides.gc.ca, the Canadian Hydrographic Service is permanently discontinuing the printing of all volumes of Canadian Tide and Current Tables starting January 2021.

Advances in technology bring a new era of marine navigation with a focus on digital and electronic products. The Canadian Hydrographic Service is transforming the way it delivers quality data and services to clients, in a timely manner, to support decision-making.

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 Western 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.

West Coast Haida Gwaii – Trial Voluntary Protection Zone for Shipping

(Recurrent publication of notice *107/21, originally published in the Notices to Mariners – Monthly Western Edition 01/2021 publication.)

Reference: Notice *1005/20 is cancelled.

Trial Voluntary Protection Zone for Shipping, West Coast Haida Gwaii (formerly Queen Charlotte Islands)

Haida Gwaii’s remote location, rugged coastline, variable sea and weather conditions, and rich ecological and cultural heritage make it vulnerable to the potential for pollution from shipping breakdowns and accidents. Increasing the distance vessels travel offshore can increase the amount of time available to address propulsion, steering or other issues, and the likelihood of a towing vessel being able to respond to a vessel that is disabled or drifting. This in turn reduces the risk of grounding and oil spills.
A trial Voluntary Protection Zone for Shipping on the West Coast of Haida Gwaii will be in effect from September 1, 2020 through October 31, 2021. In the Voluntary Protection Zone, commercial vessels of 500 gross tonnage or greater shall observe a minimum distance of 50 nautical miles offshore when transiting along the West Coast of Haida Gwaii with the following exceptions:

Cruise vessels, to observe a minimum 12 nm distance from shore;

Vessels transiting between Pacific Northwest ports (Washington, Alaska, BC), to observe a minimum 25 nm distance from shore;
Tugs and barges (including pushing and towing alongside), no minimum distance; and

Fishing vessels, no minimum distance.

The Voluntary Protection Zone for Shipping coordinates are:

54⁰ 18.108’N

134⁰ 30.432’W

53⁰ 44.036’N

134⁰ 32.677’W

53⁰ 11.118’N

134⁰ 16.412’W

52⁰ 18.483’N

133⁰ 20.917’W

51⁰ 24.590’N

132⁰ 04.081’W

51⁰ 56.158’N

131⁰ 01.830’W

54⁰ 15.436’N

133⁰ 04.788’W

Vessels are requested to adhere to these distances on a voluntary basis and only when it does not jeopardize the safety of navigation, the vessel, the persons aboard, and the cargo.

AIS Aids to Navigation (AtoNs)

Mariners are advised that the Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) is continuing to conduct supervised test beds of AIS AtoNs, with the objective of bringing AIS AtoNs to Full Operational Capability (FOC). Specific information on AIS AtoN test bed sites can be found on the CCG e-Navigation Maritime Information Portal at http://www.marinfo.gc.ca/e-nav/docs/ais-aton-locations-eng.php.

Although AIS was originally developed as a collision avoidance tool for vessels, it also allows for the broadcasting of other types of data, such as the AIS AtoN “Message 21” (AIS AtoN Report).

Ships need to be equipped with standard shipborne AIS equipment for the display of AIS messages. The IMO mandatory carriage requirement for the Class “A” AIS display is the Minimum Keyboard Display (MKD), however, the display and use of the AtoN information may require additional hardware and/or software such as an AIS-connected Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS), Electronic Chart System (ECS), Radar or Portable Pilot Unit (PPU).

As the AIS information available to mariners will be dependent on their display system and its compliance with the latest IMO and IALA standards, some transmitted information may not be displayed or may have a different symbol. Mariners are encouraged to install and upgrade systems that provide AIS overlay on ECDIS, ECS and/or Radar. Mariners should be familiar with the display settings on their vessel’s shipborne equipment.

All geographical positions (latitude and longitude) are based on the WGS 84 datum; time is displayed in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

CCG is making every effort to broadcast quality information; however, as with any navigational tool, mariners should not rely on this information as their sole means of navigation.

Mariners are advised to consult the CCG e-Navigation web page on AIS AtoN, accessible at http://www.marinfo.gc.ca/e-nav/docs/ais-aton-index-eng.php for pertinent information, including examples of AIS AtoN display and symbology.

Individual NAVWARNs and/or NOTMARs are rarely issued for AIS AtoN trials.

Mariners are requested to provide feedback on the AIS AtoN test beds to the CCG e-Navigation Team at ccg.enav.gcc@dfo-mpo.gc.ca. In addition, mariners who wish to participate in CCG’s questionnaire on AIS AtoN are invited to access it at http://www.marinfo.gc.ca/e-nav/docs/asm-aton-survey-eng.php. The collected results will guide the CCG in further developing this information service.
