Today (April 19th)

The Canadian Coast Guard is icebreaking on eastern Georgian Bay from the ice edge toward Snug Harbour in the approaches to Parry Sound. This icebreaking is for the Coast Guard’s own ships requiring access to the Parry Sound Coast Guard base this month. The attached chart shows the route.

The dates are subject to change depending on operational requirements or weather conditions.  All ice surface users should plan their ice activities carefully, use caution on the ice and avoid the shipping lanes and icebreaking operations. The ice can be expected to be deteriorating naturally due to spring conditions and the effects of the sun. Extreme caution must be exercised should anyone venture out onto the ice.
