Outreach Initiatives

Outreach is an integral part of our mission.

The Administrator’s outreach initiatives are aimed at raising awareness of the existence of the Ship-source Oil Pollution Fund (SOPF) and its availability to provide compensation for oil pollution caused by ships. The outreach affords an opportunity for the Administrator to further understand the perspectives of individual claimants, shipowners and other stakeholders who respond to an oil spill incident and, as a result, may file a claim for compensation.

On a regular basis, we strive to meet with various stakeholders and potential claimants in Canada to educate, inform, and provide information on compensation and indemnification for oil pollution damage.

We offer presentations, webinars, and information sessions for potential claimants. These sessions are to assist in better understanding the Fund’s mission to serve victims of oil pollution damage. If you are interested in having one of our experts present to your organization, please contact us.

The Administrator also attends meetings of the International Oil Pollution Compensation Funds (IOPC Funds) on average twice every year. These meetings provide the opportunity to maintain contact and dialogue with delegates representing international organizations and government agencies of IOPC Funds member states.

Attendance at these meetings also provides opportunities to review IOPC Funds claims policies to ensure that the SOPF claims policy is aligned as closely as possible with IOPC Funds policies.

To obtain a detailed account of the meetings of the IOPC governing bodies, please visit the IOPC website at www.iopcfund.org
