3. Enhance collaboration with departments and agencies throughout the marine security community
Since 2001, Canada has utilized a cooperative, multi-agency approach to securing Canadian waters. CCG is recognized as a core federal maritime security partner that provides essential information and services to support this collaborative approach.
CCG’s Maritime Security Branch is an active member in the interdepartmental maritime security community and is responsible for working with partners to develop and implement strategies that support Canada’s national security priorities. CCG’s significant contribution to the two coastal and St. Lawrence Seaway – Great Lakes Marine Security Operations Centres (MSOC) is a notable example of this. The MSOCs are designed to generate maritime situational awareness by combining the knowledge and skill sets of the government agencies engaged in, or in support of, maritime security.
