The Saint Lawrence River is part of every day life for thousands of people who live along its shores. Be it:

to provide drinking water for many municipalities
recreational boating
sport fishing
a habitat for many species of fish and birds
etc.

Events in the past, like the grounding of the Exxon Valdez in Alaska and the oil spill which followed, show us the extreme fragility of an ecosystem when a marine casualty occurs.

The pilot members of the Corporation des Pilotes du Fleuve et de la Voie Maritime du Saint-Laurent play a key role in ensuring the safety and security along the
Seaway. They safely guide vessels
to their destination, while
keeping in mind that thousands
of people rely on their experience
and professionalism.
