WCMRC Western Canada Marine Response Corporation
CANADA’S FIRST RESPONSE ORGANIZATION
WCMRC is the Transport Canada-certified marine spill response organization for Canada’s West Coast. Our mandate, under the Canada Shipping Act, is to be prepared to respond to marine oil spills along all 27,000 km of British Columbia’s coastline and to mitigate the impact when a spill occurs. This includes the protection of wildlife, economic and environmental sensitivities, and the safety of both the responders and the public.
