slide6

Tutorial - who is the Canadian Coast Guard?

Marine Communications & Traffic Services

slide8

Tutorial - who is the Canadian Coast Guard?

Mandated Waters

Oceans – the three (Pacific, Atlantic, Arctic)

Lakes – the Great ones (Erie, Huron, Superior..)

Rivers – the big ones (St Lawrence, Mackenzie…)

Not Mandated but have a Presence

Great Slave Lake, Lake Winnipeg, Lake Simcoe

Not Mandated

Inland lakes and rivers - Lake Muskoka, etc.

slide9

Tutorial - who is the Canadian Coast Guard?

All types of boater but we only see /interact with the

Boater with a Problem – or – the Problem Boaters on the Oceans, Great Lakes & connecting waterways.

slide10

Canadian Coast Guard Perspective

What Trends do we see out there?

  • Training
  • Technology
  • Troubles
  • Tidbits
slide11

Training – has the PCOC made a difference?

Premise:

  • Stats show that most boaters have the card.
  • Regardless of how they got it, they had to think.
  • On the way to the boat, safety light bulb comes on:
    • “be safe”; or
    • “don’t get dinged by the police”
slide12

Training – has the PCOC made a difference?

Results:

  • Boaters are dealing with issues themselves due to having the safety gear onboard and knowledge to self rescue
  • More boaters wearing their PFDs
  • Older boaters still have bad habits, younger boaters learning from the new / current boating environment
  • CCG responding to fewer simple incidents, responding to the more critical situations
slide13

Training – has the PCOC made a difference?

Future Challenge:

  • Paddle Sports, evolving boating activities
  • Maintaining relevancy:
    • Content - as boating environment changes
    • Delivery – keeping up with the times
    • Enforcement - resources available to be on the water
slide14

Technology – what is the boater using?

Premise:

  • Boaters are no different than landlubbers and have exported technology onto the water whether it was designed to be there or not.
slide15

Technology – what is the boater using?

Results:

  • Smart phones with apps used in place of traditional nautical devices (compass, VHF radio, charts)
  • Laptops, e-Charts, VHF DSC, GPS…
  • Safety gear becoming part of the day on the water:
    • PLBs becoming more common
    • PFD wear rate up
slide16

Technology – what is the boater using?

Challenge:

  • Limitations of electronic devices or using them
    • reliable or backup power source
    • cell phone range
    • linking devices together to have them work correctly
  • Isolationism of the self contained boater
    • not using VHF radio in case of emergency
    • heads down navigation
  • Keeping up with Technology
    • should CCG Tweet the weather, MARBs, NOTSHIPs
    • do we need (as many) aids to navigation
slide17

Troubles – how is the boater getting help?

Premise:

  • CCG is responding to fewer simple incidents
  • Boaters that much more cognizant of costs of getting into trouble on the water:
    • Repairs
    • Response
    • Fines
slide18

Troubles – how is the boater getting help?

Results:

  • Boaters not driving around without a spare
  • Private (US and Canadian) response agencies operating on Canadian waters
  • “CAA” like arrangements for boaters
  • Boaters helping boaters (MARB)
slide19

Troubles – how is the boater getting help?

Challenge:

  • Some things don’t change:
    • Alcohol
    • Testosterone
    • The old canoe behind the shed
slide20

Tidbits – other items to think about?

  • First Nations
    • Engagement nearby and further afield
  • Arctic Boating
    • Training requirements
    • Response capabilities
  • Climate Change
    • Longer season, more messaging / resources
    • Earlier seasons cold water
  • Economy
    • older boats /lower maintenance / safety second priority
