Canada has an outstanding record on marine safety due to its stringent regulatory, monitoring, and enforcement regime. The oil and natural gas marine transport industry has adopted very stringent standards which exceed regulatory requirements. Many preventative measures have been adopted to make tanker traffic as safe as possible. Our industry’s safety record has been excellent in large part because of these measures.
Canada has extensive experience in moving crude oil by sea. The federal government has been a leader in ensuring that Canada has a world‐class marine safety system.
