Component 1: An International comparison and assessment of industry best practices;
- To review the management and oversight approaches of anchorages outside public ports similar in nature to major Canadian ports such as Vancouver, Prince Rupert, Montreal, Quebec, and Halifax.
Component 2: The assessment of international frameworks to evaluate sites based on site characteristics and to manage and oversee anchorages that could be implemented in Canada;
- Propose options to identify, manage and oversee anchoring sites at major ports (e.g. Vancouver, Prince Rupert, Montreal, Quebec, Halifax) that balance safety, economic, environmental, cultural and social issues and concerns.
