Minimum Number of Licensed Pilots or Holders of Pilotage Certificates

 The minimum number of licensed pilots or holders of pilotage certificates that shall be on board ship at any time is one, except where the Authority is of opinion that, due to the conditions or nature of the voyage, the ship requires more than one person to perform pilotage duties on the ship, in which case the minimum number is two.

Further Training

 If a licence or a pilotage certificate is suspended by the Authority under paragraph 27(4)(b) of the Act, the holder of the licence or pilotage certificate shall, if he or she wishes to have the licence or certificate reinstated, take further training that will enable him or her to continue to meet the qualifications prescribed by paragraphs 14(1)(e) to (g) of these Regulations.

  • SOR/2014-36, s. 10

 If the holder of a pilotage certificate for a pilotage area is unable to meet the applicable qualification prescribed by section 14.4, he or she shall take further training to ensure that his or her knowledge of the pilotage area is equivalent to that of a holder of a pilotage certificate who meets that qualification.
