Transport Canada to tag non-compliant buoys

In an ongoing effort to clean up the spread of non-compliant buoys in the Shuswap, Transport Canada will be out on Shuswap Lake during the week of June 20 to tag those in violation of Transport Canada regulations.

These buoys may also be out of compliance with Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) regulations. 

Tagging notifies the owners of any issues with the buoy and gives them an opportunity to ensure it is brought into line with the regulations. If left unchanged, tagged buoys may be removed  by Transport Canada officials when they return later this year.

Buoys can be removed if they are not following the regulations regarding the correct size, colour and identification. This can be hazardous for boaters or other users of the lake. Buoys must also be affixed properly so they are anchored in place with appropriate materials.

For more information on Transport Canada buoy regulations, there is a guide for owners

The CSRD has additional information for waterfront property owners regarding docks and buoys. For more, see the CSRD's website under Dock & Buoy Regulations.
