June 12, 2020 - Ottawa - The Government of Canada is seeking feedback from industry and from First Nations, Inuit and Métis (Indigenous) partners on their capacity to provide services to address wrecked and abandoned vessels along Canada’s major waterways. Those include vessels that are dilapidated or pose, or may pose, a hazard to the environment, coastlines, shorelines, infrastructure or any other interest.

The Government of Canada is developing a procurement strategy to set up procurement tools such as supply arrangements for the required services. Currently, it is focusing on procurement tools for technical marine services and ship disposal.
