EXPLANATION OF TEMPORARY AND PRELIMINARY NOTICES TO MARINERS

Certain Notices to Mariners appearing in the monthly editions have a (T) or (P) appended to the regular number. These letters indicate that the information contained in the notice is of a temporary or preliminary nature, respectively.

TEMPORARY (T) NOTICES

If a temporary change in conditions affecting navigation exists and if the change will be effective for a period of over three months, a temporary (T) notice will be published. Temporary changes which are effective for periods of less than three months will not normally be published (unless it is of exceptional interest). Otherwise, information will be promulgated as a Navigational Warning (NAVWARN) by the Canadian Coast Guard Marine Communications and Traffic Services (MCTS) Centre(s) in the affected area. (T) notices will be cancelled as necessary.

Please note that (T) notices with an end date will be automatically cancelled once the end date has passed. In the event of a change to these notices, a new Notice to Mariners will be issued.

PRELIMINARY (P) NOTICES

a. When important changes affecting navigation are to take place in the near future, a Notice to Mariners describing the change will be published, so that mariners will have advance information on the change. Such notices will be designated (P).

b. When a change in conditions affecting navigation has taken place but full information is not available, a preliminary (P) notice giving available information will be published. This notice will be followed by a regular notice when complete information becomes available. The regular notice will cancel the (P) notice.

c. When a change has taken place which is too complex to describe in a written notice, a (P) notice giving general information will be published. This notice will explain that follow up action will be taken to update charts by publishing patch corrections, new editions or new charts.

Please note that following the expiry of the 90-day comment or objection period, (P) notices describing proposed changes or intention to discontinue will be automatically cancelled. In the event of a change to these notices, a new Notice to Mariners will be issued.

ACTION REQUIRED ON RECEIPT OF (T) & (P) NOTICES

It is not customary to make permanent corrections to charts and publications from (T) & (P) notices. On receipt of such notices, the information they contain should be noted in pencil on the affected charts and/or publications.

CAUTION

Mariners are reminded that charts and publications are not corrected from (T) & (P) notices when purchased from suppliers. For the list of charts affected by (T) & (P) notices, please refer to the index on page ii of this publication.

Reference: Notice 410(T)/2007 is cancelled.

2015 Annual Edition of Notices to Mariners, Notice No. 20, pages A20-1 to A20-4.
Mariners are advised that offshore exploration and exploitation vessels may be conducting drilling operations in the following areas:

Gulf of St. Lawrence

Mainland NWT
NIL
Mackenzie Delta NWT/Beaufort Sea

NOTE: Mariners are advised to obtain up-to-date position reports on drilling vessels and production installations before entering an area of exploration and exploitation. This information is available by contacting, as appropriate, ECAREG CANADA, NORDREG CANADA or CVTS OFFSHORE via any Marine Communications and Traffic Services Centre (MCTS).

*208(T)/21Canadian Coast Guard – Automatic Identification System (AIS)

Reference: Notice *819(T)/16 is cancelled.

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.

Preliminary Notices

*614(P)/21Canadian Hydrographic Service – Raster Navigational Charts to be Discontinued

The Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS) will commence the discontinuation, in progressive phases, of all of its digital Raster Navigational Charts (RNC) offered in BSB format.

CHS will support Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) users by offering Electronic Navigational Charts (ENC) in S-57 format, as well as non-GNSS users by continuing to offer Paper Charts.
To learn more about the advantages of ENC over RNC, please visit https://charts.gc.ca/charts-cartes/digital-electronique/raster-enc-eng.html.
Charts to be cancelled in the first phase of this initiative are listed below. The areas listed have existing and up-to-date ENC coverage.
Comments on this action are solicited from mariners and other interested parties by Thursday, September 23, 2021, three months following the initial publication date of Friday, June 25, 2021. Following this date, this notice will be cancelled.
Any objections raised must state the facts on which they are based and should include supporting information on safety, commerce and public benefit. If you have an active subscription to one of the charts below, it will be automatically transferred to the ENC equivalent at no additional cost.

Comments should be directed to the following email address: chsinfo@dfo-mpo.gc.ca.
