THREE NEW NAUTICAL CHARTS
FOR THE MONTREAL REGION

Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s Canadian Hydrographic Service recently published two new nautical charts for the Canal de la Rive Sud and the Lac Saint-Louis sectors. A new edition for the Lac des Deux Montagnes will also be made available in early summer. Mariners will therefore have to obtain the new charts, which will be kept up-to-date on the Notices to Mariners Web site. New electronic navigational charts have also been produced.

Chart 1429 - Canal de la Rive Sud is published at 1:20,000 scale. This new chart covers a portion of the St. Lawrence Seaway that includes the Saint-Lambert and Côte-Sainte-Catherine locks.

Chart 1430 - Lac Saint-Louis is published at 1:25,000 scale. This new chart covers the entire lake, from the Highway 40 bridge at the entrance to the Beauharnois Locks to the Lachine Rapids. It includes all of Île Perrot and the canals surrounding it. The information has been reorganized to provide recreational boaters with a single nautical chart for the lake.

Chart 1510 - Lac des Deux Montagnes retains the 1:30,000 scale.  The new updated edition will be available in early summer 2010.



PORTRAIT OF THE FISHING INDUSTRY
IN QUEBEC FOR 2009

Fisheries and Oceans Canada recently published a portrait of the Quebec Fishing Industry. This portrait is presented in two documents: the first provides an overview of the primary and secondary sectors of maritime fishing in Quebec; and the second offers a more thorough description of the situation of this industry in each maritime area.  

Illustrated by several graphs, tables and maps, these documents provide detailed information on the species landed, the primary fishing harbours and the workforce (harvesters, licences, boats, plants, etc.). Other topics are also covered, such as the demographics of maritime Quebec, aquaculture, seal hunting, freshwater commercial fisheries and maritime fishing in Nunavik.



THE CANADIAN COAST GUARD
STANDING BY

The Canadian Coast Guard has published a new pamphlet for Marine Communications and Traffic Services (MCTS) in Quebec. Presented as a single chart, it shows the locations of maritime traffic zones, search and rescue stations, Marine Communications and Traffic Services Centres, and mandatory calling-in points.

While this chart cannot be used for navigation, it is a practical complementary document for all navigators.

During the Montreal Boat Show, Canadian Coast Guard determined that there was a great interest in MCTS on the part of mariners.
