EXPLANATORY NOTES

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 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. For the list of charts affected by (T) & (P) notices, please refer to the index on page ii of the current Monthly Summary of (T) and (P) Notices publication.

Please note that, 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 & 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 (CHS) - 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 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 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.

For further information, contact your regional Navigational Warning (NAVWARN) Issuing Desk.

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 *505/20, originally published in the Notices to Mariners Publication - Western Edition 05/2020.)

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 2020.

VOLUNTARY PROTECTION MEASURES

Voluntary measures are in effect from June 1st to October 31st, 2020. 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.

BRITISH COLUMBIA COASTAL WATERS – PROTECTION OF THE SOUTHERN RESIDENT KILLER WHALE

(Recurrent publication of notice *707/20, originally published in the Notices to Mariners Publication - Western Edition 07/2020.)

All vessels, including recreational boats and whale watching vessels, have an important role to play in reducing acoustic and physical disturbance. For a second consecutive year, the Government of Canada is implementing an Interim Order for the Protection of the Killer Whale (Orcinus orca) in the Waters of Southern British Columbia, including the following mandatory measures:

Approach Distance Prohibition

Vessels are prohibited from approaching any killer whale within 400 metres within Southern Resident killer whale critical habitat and British Columbia coastal waters east of Vancouver Island and south of Campbell River (Cape Mudge) and Malaspina Peninsula (Sarah Point) from June 1, 2020 to May 31, 2021.

Details of vessels and persons exempted from the approach distance prohibition are described in Sections 2(2) and 3(2) of the Interim Order.

Interim Sanctuary Zones (ISZ)

Interim Sanctuary Zones create spaces of refuge for the whales on a temporary basis, pending further research into a longer-term approach. The location of these zones is based on scientific knowledge of important foraging areas for Southern Resident killer whales.

From June 1 until November 30, 2020, no vessel traffic or fishing activity is allowed in Interim Sanctuary Zones off the southwest coast of Pender Island, southeast end of Saturna Island and at Swiftsure Bank. Exceptions will be allowed for emergency vessels and vessels engaged in Indigenous food, social and ceremonial fisheries, and additional exceptions apply.

A complete list of vessel exceptions to the Interim Sanctuary Zone prohibitions can be found in Section 4(2) of the Interim Order.

Aids to Navigation

The Canadian Coast Guard has established virtual AIS Aids to Navigation to help delineate the Interim Sanctuary Zones.

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 an Interim Sanctuary Zone subject to restrictions, per NOTMAR 819(T)/2016.

Each Interim Sanctuary Zone is delimited by virtual AIS AtoNs, which may be displayed on a ship’s navigation equipment, with the proper interface, such as

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

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

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 Southern Resident killer whale, as in all applicable NOTMARs and NAVWARNs.

For the Interim Sanctuary Zones and 400 metres approach distance, the NAVWARN that is currently in effect will be provided to vessels subject to the Vessel Traffic Services Zone Regulations.

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.

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 navigation for the purposes of protecting Southern Resident killer whales.

If you do not comply with instructions in the NAVWARNs or in the Interim Order, 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 entered an Interim Sanctuary Zone or violated the approach distance, Transport Canada Marine Safety inspectors will review all information provided through AIS and other detection methods and may take enforcement action.

If a deviation from the Interim Order 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.

CANADIAN HYDROGRAPHIC SERVICE – CANADIAN TIDE AND CURRENT TABLES – PRINTING TO BE DISCONTINUED

(Recurrent publication of notice *906/20, originally published in the Notices to Mariners Publication - Western Edition 09/2020.)

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.

CANADIAN COAST GUARD – IRIDIUM SAFETYCAST SERVICE

(Recurrent publication of notice *907/20, originally published in the Notices to Mariners Publication - Western Edition 09/2020.)

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).

Effective October 1st 2020, an Iridium SafetyCast Service for broadcasting navigational warnings in the English language will be declared to be in an “Initial Operational Capability” (IOC) for Canada’s Arctic NAVAREAs XVII and XVIII.

During the Iridium SafetyCast IOC period, 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 IOC period 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 is ready to establish "Full Operational Capability" (FOC) will come at a later date and will be announced through a subsequent Notice to Mariners.

*1005WEST COAST HAIDA GWAII – TRIAL VOLUNTARY PROTECTION ZONE FOR SHIPPING

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:

54° 13.390’N

134° 30.543’W

54° 15.369’N

133° 04.908’W

51° 56.147’N

52° 18.598’N

133° 20.921’W

53° 11.096’N

134° 16.363’W

53° 43.992’N

134° 32.625’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.
