Days 194 The Coast Guard and The Fisheries Officers in Shelburne and Cape Sable Island , Nova Scotia.

The Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) (French: Garde côtière canadienne (GCC)) is the coast guard of Canada.

It is the civilian federal agency responsible for providing maritime search and rescue (SAR) on its national portion of international waters such as the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Seaway, as well as on Lake Winnipeg and the territorial waters off the three ocean coasts (Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic) under the auspices of the National Search and Rescue Program, aids to navigation, marine pollution response, marine (radio) communications & traffic services and icebreaking. CCG’s responsibility encompasses Canada’s 202,080[1] km long coastline, the longest of any nation in the world. The CCG-GCC is headquartered in the national capital city of Ottawa, Ontario and is a Special Operating Agency within the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans. (Search and Rescue on Canada’s inland waters comes under the jurisdiction of the provinces, not the federal government. Coastal and Seaway patrol vessels are operated by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and by joint RCMP-CCG Marine Security Enforcement Teams.)
