Cleaner Marine Shipping

We make Canada’s major ports among the cleanest and most efficient in the world.

Canada’s coastal communities are home to people who work hard, and who help keep local and regional economies strong and growing.

At the same time, around the world, marine shipping is a significant source of carbon emissions – something that threatens everyone’s well-being. That’s why we have moved forward with a significant pilot project that will deliver quieter, lower-emissions tankers for transporting oil from the Trans Mountain pipeline.

To help make Canada’s ports some of the world’s cleanest in the world, we will support efforts that convert ships from heavy oil and diesel, such as the ferries serving Canada’s coastal communities. We will work with partners over the next year to design and introduce appropriate programs.
