Deregulation of Canadian cruise permitting process initiated

March 26th, 2015

AECO has made progress concerning Canadian awareness of the need for less Canadian bureaucracy regarding cruise permits. Last year AECO wrote an open letter to the Canadian authorities addressing the cumbersome, expensive and problematic Canadian cruise permitting system with more than 50 different applications and permits, which can (and often must) be obtained from more than 35 different Canadian Authorities. At the end of the year AECO received a very positive response from the Canadian Minister of Environment, the Honorable Leona Aglukkaq, who has taken our concerns seriously and initiated a process to improve the situation.
