Lawrence Cannon, Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities, announced that 386 projects aimed at enhancing security at Canadian ports and marine facilities will receive funding under the Marine Security Contribution Program, and that Transport Canada is now accepting applications under the program’s next round of funding. This round of funding will provide up to $42 million to 101 ports and marine facilities across the country. The funds will be used for security enhancements such as surveillance equipment, dockside and perimeter security, command, control and communications equipment, and training. The five-year, $115-million program is helping Canada’s ports and marine facilities to modernize and strengthen their security systems and programs, helping them meet the requirements of the Marine Transportation Security Regulations and continue to comply with the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code.
