The main purpose of RAMN 2013 is to present information on radio communications and radio navigational aids services provided in Canada by the Canadian Coast Guard. Radio facilities of other government agencies that contribute to the safety of ships in Canadian waters are also included.
RAMN 2013 is published in two editions: one for the Atlantic Coast, Gulf and St. Lawrence River to Montréal, Eastern Arctic (including Hudson Bay and Strait), the Great Lakes (including St. Lawrence River to Montréal) and Lake Winnipeg; the other for the Pacific Coast, Western Arctic and the Athabasca-Mackenzie Watershed area. Each edition is also available in French.
RAMN 2013 is published each April. Amendments are advertised by radio broadcast (Notices to Shipping) and/or in Notices to Mariners, Section 3.
Every ship station fitted on a Canadian ship or on a non-Canadian ship engaged in the coasting trade of Canada, pursuant to the Ship Station (Radio) Regulations 1999, and all ships in waters under Canadian jurisdiction, pursuant to the Charts and Nautical Publications Regulations, 1995, are required to carry the most recent applicable edition of RAMN.
