Duties

Our Vision : A marine industry where safety and environmental protection are

the top priorities, Transport Canada is building towards a future where industry

operates at the maximum level of delegation possible, with the flexibility to

meet safety requirements in the most cost-efficient manner. This means that

the regulatory framework must be increasingly performance based to allow for

the implementation of systematic approaches and to provide continuous

improvement in safety performance. How we manage risk in the maritime

world or what we do to prevent accidents from occurring in the first place

becomes the logical and necessary focus of our endeavours. For the purposes

of the Marine Safety Program and to bring our strategic goals into focus,

Transport Canada Marine Safety and Security (TCMSS) defines safety as the

condition where risks are managed to acceptable levels, which translates into

our mission.

Our Mission : To continuously maintain and enhance safety and the protection

of life, health, property and the marine environment through : (a) the

development, maintenance and implementation of an effective regulatory

regime; (b) education and awareness; and (c) monitoring and enforcement.

Work environment

Inspectors must be leaders and skilled communicators capable of working

effectively with others and adapting to the different needs of our clients. They

must sometimes take rapid, decisive action and must be able to negotiate,

facilitate behavior change and develop new competencies in client industries.

Inspectors work in an environment of high stress due to the possible impact of error and real or potential conflict. In the course of ensuring that regulations

are respected, inspectors carry significant responsibility and accountability and

their decisions have a direct impact on the safety of Canadians.

Intent of the process

A pool of qualified candidates may be established to staff similar positions open
