"The implementation of the MARPOL Convention is an important part of Canada's participation in the prevention and reduction of ship-source water and air pollution globally. Participation in the development of these global pollution reduction measures will help improve pollution standards and regulations in Canada. Canada plays a key role in discussions on MARPOL pollution prevention measures, since these will impact national water and air quality. Canada has been involved in issues associated with prevention of pollution from oil, strengthening provisions related to sewage and garbage disposals, the implementation of stringent Sulphur requirements, and the protection of our Arctic waters"--Plain language summary.
