Saint Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation

The St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation is a not-for-profit Crown corporation owned by the Government of Canada.

It is responsible for the safe and efficient movement of marine traffic through the Canadian-owned and operated facilities of the Saint Lawrence Seaway, which consists of 13 of the 15 locks between Montreal and Lake Erie. The Corporation plays a pivotal role in ensuring that the waterway remains a safe and well-managed system, which it shares with its American counterpart, the Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation.

The Corporation's mandate promotes efficiency and responsiveness to the needs of shipping interests, ports, marine agencies, and provincial and state jurisdictions. [ [http://www.greatlakes-seaway.com/en/aboutus/slsmc.html slsmc ] ]
