Transport Canada seeking your input on new MPR

From the interwebs

Marine Personnel Regulations – those regulations that dictate everything for professional seafarers in Canada – are coming – many years late (for STCW2010), but they are coming. As a seafarer in Canada I have been “blindsided” by lack of consultation in the past when drawing up these regs that directly affect us. Now, it looks like TC wants y/our input. Lets gives it to them. I will try to attend Vancouver’s presentation. See you there.

I am pleased to announce that Transport Canada will be holding consultation sessions across Canada to discuss the proposed amendments to the Marine Personnel Regulations (MPR).

Below are the web-links to register for the MPR consultations. Following your registration, the meeting documentation will be sent to you.

1) Vancouver, British Columbia – November 19, 2018 … 1565269108

2) Toronto, Ontario – November 21, 2018 … 1565565996

3) Quebec City, Quebec – November 23, 2018 … 1565351354

4) Halifax, Nova Scotia – November 27, 2018 … 1565418555
