Analysis of Programs by Strategic Outcome

Program 3.3 - Maritime Security


The Maritime Security Program is led by the Canadian Coast Guard. This program collaborates with federal departments and agencies with maritime security responsibilities, including the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Canadian Forces, Canada Border Services Agency, Public Safety Canada, and Transport Canada, by facilitating the provision of maritime expertise, vessel support, and information. The Maritime Security Program provides these agencies with relevant Coast Guard information in support of their maritime and national security mandates. Coast Guard's Fleet Operational Readiness, Marine Communications and Traffic Services, and Shore-based Asset Readiness programs are integral contributors to the delivery of this program. This program is delivered in coordination with the Department's Compliance and Enforcement Program. The legal basis or authority for the Maritime Security Program is found primarily in the Oceans Act.
