Report marine pollution

Vessels and oil handling facility operators must report all pollution or threats of pollution. Reports must follow Transport Canada’s Guidelines for Reporting Incidents Involving Dangerous Goods, Harmful Substances and / or Marine Pollutants.

When calling in a spill report, you’ll need to provide:

  • your name
  • your telephone number
  • location of the spill
  • quantity of the spill
  • type of product spilled
  • on-scene weather

Report an incident by calling your nearest office. You may also report marine pollution incidents by contacting a MCTS centre on VHF channel 16.
