January 4, 2023 | Circular No. 11478

Dear Member,

Please note that Maritime-Ontario has implemented a new rate schedule for container examinations at the Port of Halifax.  Generally speaking, rates have increased by approximately 16% for all exam types.  The full list of rates can be found at this LINK (the column on the right hand side indicates rate levels for 2022, for comparison purposes).

The new schedule came into effect on December 9, 2022 and will remain in place until November 8, 2023.  We are seeking information from Maritime-Ontario as to why industry did not receive advance notification or opportunity to comment on this increase.  We will revert with additional information once available, but in the meantime, members’ should be guided by the new rate schedule.
