CANADA SHIPPING ACT

Pollutant Substances Pollution Prevention Regulations

 [Repealed, SOR/2002-276, s. 2]

Prescription of Pollutants

 For the purposes of Part XV of the Canada Shipping Act, the substances listed in Schedule I are prescribed to be pollutants, except when they are carried in packaged form or in freight containers, portable tanks or road or rail tank wagons.

  • SOR/83-347, s. 1
  • SOR/2002-276, s. 2

Prohibition

  •  (1) Subject to section 5, no ship shall discharge a pollutant listed in Schedule I into any of the following waters:

    • (a) Canadian waters south of the 60th parallel of north latitude;

    • (b) Canadian waters north of the 60th parallel of north latitude that are not within a shipping safety control zone prescribed pursuant to the Arctic Waters Pollution Prevention Act; and

    • (c) fishing zones of Canada described in section 16 of the Oceans Act and prescribed under paragraph 25(b) of that Act.

  • (2) Subject to section 5, no person shall discharge or permit the discharge of a pollutant listed in Schedule I from a ship into any of the waters described in paragraphs (1)(a) to (c).

  • SOR/2002-276, s. 3

 A pollutant listed in Schedule I may be discharged from a ship into any of the waters described in paragraphs 4(1)(a) to (c) if

  • (a) the discharge is necessary for the purpose of saving lives or preventing the immediate loss of the ship; or

  • (b) the discharge occurs as a result of an accident of navigation in which the ship or its equipment is damaged, unless the accident occurs as a result of an action that is outside the ordinary practice of seafarers.

  • (2) A pollutant listed in Schedule I that is a noxious liquid substance as defined in section 2 of the Dangerous Chemicals and Noxious Liquid Substances Regulations may be discharged from a ship into the territorial sea and the portions of fishing zones 4 to 6 that are not within a shipping safety control zone if the discharge is made in accordance with Part IV of those Regulations.
