WHEN BLUE is GREEN
In the context of the Maritime Strategy, Québec has created a Centre d’expertise en gestion des risques d’incidents maritimes (centre of expertise in marine incident risk management – CEGRIM).
Reporting to the Ministère de la Sécurité publique, CEGRIM groups experts from six (6) government departments with complementary marine incident risk management mandates:
CEGRIM’s mandate consists in implementing tools and best practices for prevention, planning, response and recovery to deal with potential hazardous materials spills in the St. Lawrence River.
The Centre supports and advises local and regional authorities in planning for marine emergency measures.
