2008 April - Arctic Shipping - The Canadian Challenge

Postby The Dieselduck » Mon Mar 31, 2008 8:48 pm

Friday April 28th, 2008
Victoria, BC, Canada

Following on the success of "Canada's Third Ocean", the Nautical Institute British Columbia Branch's 2007 Conference that examined the possibility of the Northwest Passage becoming a highway of the North, "Arctic Shipping - The Canadian Challenge" will examine the operational challenges facing both shippers operating in the waters of the Canadian Arctic and stewards tasked with oversight on behalf of the Canadian government.

This conference will provide insight into the challenges and how the players there now, and looking into the future meet them.
