February 9, 2023 | Circular No. 11488

Dear Member,

We would like to invite members to a consultation session with the St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation on their new Voyage Information System which is being designed to promote the overall efficiency of vessel transits in the Seaway.  The session will be on February 21st from 1500 – 1630hrs EST with options to attend in our boardroom, or via MS Teams (Please see below for Teams Link).

The Canadian Seaway is working together with the US Seaway and VOLPE to design this new AI based system which is intended to address current pain points and inefficiencies in data exchange, improve planning and execution of vessel transits, and enhance the scheduling of key resources.

The SLSMC presented their VIS system at our recent Mariners’ Workshop, however they would like to hold a direct session with international shipping interests.

Please contact the undersigned if you have any questions and if you plan to attend (in person or teams).


Chad Allen
Director, Marine Operations
Shipping Federation of Canada
