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

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 Coast Guard Publication – Comments and Suggestions on Notices to Mariners (NOTMAR) Publications

In an effort to continuously improve the Notices to Mariners publications and to provide the most efficient service possible, the Notices to Mariners team invites all mariners and other interested parties to submit comments and suggestions on possible improvements to its various publications and services at the following email address: Notmar.XNCR@dfo-mpo.gc.ca.

Transport Canada – COVID-19 Measures, Updates and Guidance

(Recurrent publication of notice *401/20, originally published in the Notices to Mariners – Monthly Western Edition 04/2020 publication.)

Please refer to the link below for the latest updates to transportation related measures taken by Transport Canada in response to the evolving novel Coronavirus disease (COVID-19):

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.

Anguniaqvia Niqiqyuam Marine Protected Area (ANMPA) And Tarium Niryutait Marine Protected Areas (TNMPA) – Beluga And Bowhead Whale Protection: Voluntary Avoidance And Slowdown Areas

(Recurrent publication of notice *506/21, originally published in the Notices to Mariners – Monthly Western Edition 05/2021 publication.)

The two established Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) in Canada’s Western Arctic are located within the Inuvialuit Settlement Region, as such all activities must comply with the Inuvialuit Final Agreement. Protection and preservation of Arctic wildlife, the environment and biological productivity is one of the principles of the Inuvialuit Final Agreement and it is this principle that led the Inuvialuit Regional Corporation and the Inuvialuit Game Council to initiate establishment of the Western Arctic MPAs. The waters in and near the MPAs, and the offshore marine habitats of the Beaufort Sea and Amundsen Gulf, are important summer foraging habitats used seasonally (May-October) by the Eastern Beaufort Sea beluga stock, and the Bering-Chukchi-Beaufort bowhead population.

Regulatory Protection Measures
All whale species are protected under the Marine Mammal Regulations, pursuant to the Fisheries Act. Within the boundaries of the MPAs, a general prohibition is set out in the Regulations, pursuant to the Oceans Act. Any incident with a marine mammal within the MPAs must be reported within two hours after its occurrence, to the Canadian Coast Guard. For marine wildlife sightings and incidents such as collisions that occur outside the MPAs or for any situation involving a marine mammal that is dead or in trouble, contact Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Inuvik office at (867) 777-7500.

For more information on the ANMPA and TNMPA, including local contacts and species specific minimum distances, see Section A2 - Notices 5 and 5A.3 of the Notices to Mariners Annual Edition 2021.

Voluntary Protection Measures

Voluntary measures are in effect from June 1st to October 31st, 2021. See map above.

These measures apply to merchant vessels, cruise ships, small vessels and adventure craft within the boundaries of the MPAs and the additional identified areas to prevent collisions with whales and to mitigate the underwater noise generated by the vessels. These measures should only be taken when they will not jeopardize navigational safety.

Avoid (red area): To reduce the risk of underwater noise disturbance and collisions with whales within the MPAs, vessels should avoid transiting through the MPAs if possible. If passage through this area is required, vessels should slow down to a maximum speed through the water of 10 knots and post a lookout such as a marine mammal observer 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 up to 10 knots. It is more difficult to see the animals in rain, fog, or in rough sea states, therefore increased caution is recommended.

Slow down to 10 knots or less (yellow area): To reduce the risk of underwater noise disturbance and collisions with whales within this area, it is recommended that vessels should slow down to a maximum speed through the water of 10 knots, remain in the navigation and marked community supply channels and post a lookout.

These voluntary measures are secondary to rights under the Inuvialuit Final Agreement.

MPA Coordinates

The Tarium Niryutait Marine Protected Areas consist of three areas of the Mackenzie Bay: Okeevik, Kittigaryuit and Niaqunnaq. The three areas are bounded by rhumb lines connecting the following geographical coordinates [North America Datum 1983 (NAD 83)/World Geodetic System (WGS 84)].

Page 28:

ADD AS FOLLOWS:

Other Requirements for the Tarium Niryutait Marine Protected Areas

oIt is forbidden for ships to approach the traditional marine mammal harvest grounds, or to approach marine mammals unless they are directly associated with the traditional harvest of these animals.

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.
