The Government of Canada is seeking input on the Low Impact Shipping Corridors. Under the Oceans Protection Plan, the Northern Low-Impact Shipping Corridors (Corridors) initiative is co-led by the Canadian Coast Guard, Transport Canada, and Canadian Hydrographic Service. The Corridors initiative seeks to minimize potential effects of shipping on wildlife, respect culturally and ecologically sensitive areas, enhance marine navigation safety, and guide investments in the North. The main objectives of the Corridors initiative are to collaboratively develop a governance framework to support the corridors, and to identify priority areas for service enhancement.
