Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s (DFO) Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) sector requires services related to the provision of placing, lifting/removal, maintaining and servicing of buoys through local contractors. 


The Canadian Coast Guard, Marine Navigation Services establishes aids to navigation that assist vessels in navigating safely through our waterways. The program benefits pleasure craft, fishing, and commercial vessels and ensures the public's right to navigate. Canadian Coast Guard Navigation Programs is mandated to keep waters accessible by providing aids to navigation, developing waterways, and protecting navigable waters.

The Canadian Coast Guard is contracting out for the provision of placing, lifting/removal, maintaining, and servicing of the following buoys as per the attached documents.


The Contractor is required to:

1. Provide their own vessel to complete this requirement.

2. Place buoys on position in accordance with navigational requirements using GPS when required (seasonal or year-round);

3. Maintain buoys on position and in operation;

4. Change lanterns as required

5. Lift, remove, place, or change buoys as required.


Upon contract award, the Contractor must complete the contractor profile document that the Project Authority will provide.

Upon contract award, the Contractor must inspect all buoys and equipment listed in Annex B within 30 days and report any discrepancies/defects to the Aids to Navigation Operations Office/Project Authority.

Following the initial inspection, the Contractor shall respond to all discrepancies/outages regarding buoys once notified of the outage and report a plan to respond to the Aids to Navigation Operations Office/Project Authority. The initial inspection at contract award is verifying that the buoy is on position and all associated accessories, such as lights and racons, are in good working order. This initial inspection is an above water inspection and does not require lifting each buoy.

The Contractor shall inspect all buoys after periods of abnormally bad weather, ice conditions, or if the Contractor believes the buoys in their area may have been adversely affected. This inspection is to determine that the buoys are in their correct positions and that the lights, etc., are functioning. If any are adversely affected, the Contractor shall report all discrepancies and make all repairs as part of this contract.

Buoy positions shall be checked using the methods provided on the Buoy Data Sheets.

The Contractor shall change components as necessary to maintain the operation of the lights and buoys, including removing old and replacing them with new components such as lanterns, moorings, and reflective material.

Should a buoy be removed from a contract area permanently, an amendment will be issued to the Contractor reducing the Contract amount. Likewise, should a buoy be added to the contract area, an amendment will be issued, increasing the Contract amount. Amounts are based on prices indicated in Annex B – Basis of Payment.
