Canada Marine Act Review Submission of the Western Provinces 2002

The federal Minister of Transport is required, by virtue of section 144 of the Canada Marine Act, to complete a review of the "provisions and operations" of the Act during the fifth year after it received Royal Assent. Thus, on May 26, 2002, the Honourable David Collenette announced a review. The review is to be completed by June 2003. The four Western Provinces worked together in the fall of 2002 to prepare a joint CMA Review response.
