In their recent newsletter, NMMA Canada reported that on March 23, the House of Commons Standing Committee on Transport, Infrastructure and Communities tabled its report entitled: A Study of the Navigation Protection Act. The Committee examined the current iteration of the Navigation Protection Act (formerly Navigable Waters Protection Act) and how the changes to the Act over the past five years have affected stakeholders. In 2012, there was legislation introduced which included amendments to the Navigation Protection Act. These amendments came into force in 2014 and concentrated the application of the Act on 162 of Canada’s busiest commercial and recreational navigable waterways by introducing a list of Scheduled waters (i.e. oceans, lakes and rivers). It is important to note that navigable water includes a canal and any other body of water created or altered as a result of the construction of any work.

In its report, 11 recommendations were made to the Government of Canada by the Committee to treat a broad range of issues. To read the recommendations click here
