TRANSPORT CANADA PROPOSES AMENDMENTS TO THE CONTRAVENTIONS REGULATIONS (SCHEDULE 1 – CANADA MARINE ACT)

May 18th, 2017

Canada Port Authorities are governed by the Canada Marine Act. Schedule 1 of the Contraventions Regulations, identifies federal offences that are designated as contraventions.

Transport Canada is proposing an amendment to the Contraventions Regulations, which would provide enforcement officers with an appropriate tool to promote compliance with driving and parking instructions posted on signs or devices while on Port Authority property. This would address:

Unauthorized parking that impedes the flow of traffic in and out of a port; and Port safety and security concerns.

How? The amendment would:

  • Add a new Part under Schedule I of the Contraventions Regulations titled Port Authorities Operations Regulations (PAOR)
  • Designate as a contravention, the offence under paragraph 11(2)(a) of the PAOR with an associated fine of $100.00.
