Canadian maritime law covers many commercial activities on the ocean.

Shipping and logistics, charter transportation services, towing, freight contracts, marine construction, and many other activities fall under the jurisdiction of maritime law. These activities can create a wide range of legal issues, such as:


  • Collisions resulting in personal injury,  property damage, and other losses
  • Financial matters (such as mortgages, bankruptcy, or insurance)
  • Contract disputes
  • Compliance with all applicable regulations (such as maritime or workplace safety)
  • Liability for harbors, marinas, and terminals
