Port Information Guide

Port Information Guide

The Port Information Guide which contains the St. John’s Port Authority Practices and Procedures was created pursuant to the Canada Marine Act Section 56, Subsection (1) (b) and have been developed for the purpose of promoting safe and efficient navigation and environmental protection in the waters of the Port of St. John’s and may be amended from time to time.

The practices and procedures are to be followed by all vessels entering, berthed, departing, maneuvering, underway, or at anchor in the waters of the Port.

Except in an emergency, nothing in these practices and procedures shall supersede any requirement of the Canada Marine Act, the Canada Shipping Act, the Pilotage Act, or regulations made pursuant to them. Environmental protection and approvals may require the concurrence or the full involvement of the federal and provincial Departments of the Environment and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans.

Port Authorities Operations Regulations, made pursuant to the Canada Marine Act Section 62, Subsection (I) may also apply.
