Canada’s Ferry Operators Release Video Promoting Environmental Stewardship

June 3, 2015 – As we celebrate Canadian Environment Week, Canada’s ferry operators are reminding Canadians that our sector is doing its part for a greener tomorrow.

Through a short video posted en ligne., the Canadian Ferry Association CFA) is highlighting the steps our members are taking to make sure their vessels are as environmentally friendly as possible. These efforts include:

• Ordering 8 new Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) vessels, and retrofitting 2 existing ferries with LNG.
• Constructing a new, green, passenger terminal in North Sydney for Marine Atlantic.
• Operating North America’s first-ever hybrid ferry by Société des traversiers du Québec (STQ).

With over 55 million passengers, 19 million vehicles and billions of dollars of goods transported annually, the ferry sector is a crucial part of Canada’s infrastructure.
