Mark Gauthier, our Deputy Administrator will participate virtually to the HNS workshop on April 3 and 4, 2023. This workshop is organised by Transport Canada in cooperation with the IOPC Funds and the IMO.
Canada ratified the International Convention on Liability and Compensation in Connection with the 2010 HNS Convention. The convention is likely to enter into force in the near future, given that a number of countries have made progress in their ratification. The IOPC Funds’ and IMO’s secretariats formed an informal working group to prepare a draft Claims Manual for the future HNS Fund. More information on the HNS Convention can be found at: www.hnsconvention.org.
