Our Environment


For several years now, Rigel Shipping Canada has been collecting data on marine mammals, that visit the St. Lawrence region and the East Canadian waters, for the Marine Mammals Observation Network.

The goal is to gather data in the remote offshore areas and over large distances. The information obtained gives an updated view on the frequent changes in the environment of the marine mammals. This allows a continuous improvement of environmental protection for them. We are very proud that in the past 3 years, together with Transport Desgagn├ęs, we exceeded 1000 observations, with 361 observations just in 2017.

We are committed to continue and improve these efforts, to reduce the environmental footprint of our activities and help with the conservation of threatened or endangered species.
