Data extracted November 15, 2017
In November 2013, the Transportation Safety Board developed and deployed a new Marine Database. The new database significantly improves the TSB’s ability to collect, categorize and present statistics. In accordance with these changes the statistical summaries for January 2014 onwards will be presented in a slightly different format.
New TSB regulations came into effect on July 1, 2014, changing some reporting requirements.
