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.

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 of Notices to Mariners is published.

In addition, the monthly publication and related files to download, such as chart patches, 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 2022. 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 (NAVWARN) should be kept until superseded by Notices to Mariners or through revised charts issued by the Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS).

NAVWARN 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.

*1206/22Canadian Coast Guard – Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) Service in Canada Permanently Discontinued

(Recurrent publication of notice *1206/22, originally published in the Notices to Mariners – Monthly Eastern Edition 12/2022 publication.)

As of December 15, 2022, the Canadian Coast Guard has permanently discontinued the provision of its DGPS service across Canada.

Discontinuing this service aligns with Coast Guard’s efforts to modernize marine navigation services and find alternatives to aging DGPS infrastructures.

Today’s GPS meets the needs of international Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) requirements. Further, for mariners in Canadian waters, there is no carriage requirement for ground or space-based augmentation capability on board vessels for Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS).

Modern GNSS receivers can use the Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) as a viable alternative to DGPS. Coast Guard’s technical review of PNT solutions for Canada, and a study of the performance of WAAS found coverage to be excellent throughout Canada, including up to 72’ north latitude in the Arctic.

*203/23Canadian Coast Guard Publication – Annual Edition of Notices to Mariners 2023

The Annual Edition of Notices to Mariners 2023 is now available for free download, on the NOTMAR website at https://www.notmar.gc.ca/annual.

Paper copies of this publication are no longer sold. This printable online version is kept up to date.

Amendments to this publication are advertised in Section 1 of the monthly editions of Notices to Mariners (https://www.notmar.gc.ca/monthly).

The 2023 edition has been revised up to February 23, 2023 and supersedes the 2022 edition.

*204/23Canadian Coast Guard – Cessation of Rectangular Broadcasting in NAVAREA / METAREAs XVII and XVIII

Since 2010, the five Arctic NAVAREA/METAREAs have promulgated warnings and forecasts to their areas of responsibility using INMARSAT-C’s rectangular area addressing capability. At that time, it was not possible to code older Inmarsat-C receivers to receive warnings and forecasts directly addressed to the Arctic NAVAREA/METAREAs.

All Inmarsat-C and Mini-C receivers available for purchase today are able to receive warnings and forecasts addressed to the Arctic NAVAREA/METAREAs, and have been for more than a decade.

Effective on January 1st, 2024, the Arctic NAVAREA/METAREAs will commence broadcasting their warnings and forecasts using their unique numeric identifier and will cease using rectangular addressing.

During 2023, the Arctic NAVAREA/METAREAs will transmit test messages using the numeric NAVAREA/METAREA identifier to allow mariners to verify reception on their Inmarsat-C or Mini-C receivers.

Mariners navigating in Arctic waters must ensure that their Inmarsat-C or Mini-C receiver detects the new encoding prior to January 1st, 2024 to continue receiving Arctic NAVAREA/METAREA warnings and forecasts.
