In a larger sense, the Corporation for Mid St.Lawrence Pilots (CPSLC) is a crucial link within the maritime safety chain.

The ship owner always aims at maximizing the draught of his vessel and this in turn involves constraints on the vessel's maneuverability and involves a higher level of risk management.

To ensure the synchronization of a deep draughted vessel, the pilot takes into consideration tide wave along with the use of data from tide gauges located along the St.Lawrence to ensure under keel clearance required by the Canadian Coast Guard is respected.

The CPSLC pilots offer safe solutions as added value to a vessel's cost effectiveness. They also actively participate in meetings held with the industry, government officials and environmental groups and are involved in implementing solutions to reduce these risk factors.
