About the Maritime Information Portal

E-Navigation is the electronic collection, integration, exchange, presentation and analysis of maritime information on board vessels and on land. E-navigation improves the services associated with navigation, marine safety, and marine environment protection.

The maritime information portal was developed as part of the Canadian Coast Guard e-Navigation initiative in partnership with other government departments and agencies, including the Canadian Hydrographic Service, Environment Canada and Transport Canada, as well as several maritime organizations.

Whether you need information about marine weather, ice conditions, tides, navigation restrictions, nautical charts or sailing directions, the marine information portal facilitates access to official electronic information required to plan a voyage in Canadian waters.
