The OceanSmart program was developed to help commercial mariners reduce their environmental footprint. The program takes a three-pronged approach:         


  • Our Green Boating Guide offers environmentally friendly tips for mariners in areas such as cleaners, vessel maintenance, and waste management.
  • Our Fuel Efficiency Guide identifies operation and design measures to make vessels more efficient. 

  • Providing the OceanSmart app mariners can use to quickly report spills or contamination to Fisheries andOceans Canada, the Canadian Coast Guard, and other relevant authorities. This helps shorten clean-up times by making responses faster and use of the available resources more efficient.
