Data extracted 18 July 2022

In November 2013, the Transportation Safety Board developed and deployed a new Marine Database. The new database significantly improves the TSB’s ability to collect, categorize and present statistics. In accordance with these changes the statistical summaries for January 2014 onwards will be presented in a slightly different format.

New TSB regulations came into effect on July 1, 2014, changing some reporting requirements.

  1. * Under new reporting requirements the release of dangerous goods has been harmonized with Part 8 of the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations. Detailed data was not collected prior to July 1, 2014.
  2. ** New regulations clarify the reporting requirements for a total failure of any machinery or technical system.

Note: This is preliminary information subject to year-end validation and reconciliation.
