Icebreaking Publications

The Canadian Coast Guard has published the newly revised nautical publication "Ice Navigation in Canadian Waters", in collaboration with Transport Canada, Canadian Ice Service, and the Canadian Hydrographic Service. This revised version should be considered as the official publication. The Charts and Nautical Publications Regulations require this publication to be carried on board if the vessel is making a voyage during which ice may be encountered. The new version is available to download, free-of-charge, from Ice Navigation in Canadian Waters. It is important to note that the paper version of the document will no longer be available.
