Enhanced Maritime Situational Awareness

The Government of Canada is developing a new maritime awareness information system.

This system will provide Indigenous Peoples, coastal communities and marine partners with vessel traffic data and access to local maritime information. The system will be user-friendly and will provide information in real time.

The system could include:

  • weather information, including sea and ice conditions‎
  • tidal and underwater current information
  • vessel information from terrestrial Automatic Identification Systems (AIS) data
  • vessel information from space-based AIS (satellites) data
  • historical vessel position information
  • information on ecologically sensitive areas
  • traditional and cultural knowledge

We are partnering with 10 Indigenous communities across Canada to test and evaluate the system. This will happen through one-year pilot projects, beginning in spring 2019. These pilot projects are an opportunity for partners to give us feedback, and will help to improve and update the system.
