NAV CANADA (NC) provided Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) with automated minutely weather observations from six select AWOS stations (i.e. airport locations) in southern Ontario as an experimental, proof-of-concept program in support of the 2015 Games. The minutely data were at a higher temporal frequency than the hourly observations that are normally provided (sub-hourly weather specials, as required). The minutely data from these stations were considered raw and unofficial; observations can only be considered official after NC data processing and transmission to ECCC is in a specific format and fashion (as they are for hourly observations).

Four ground-based radiometers (ultraviolet radiation instruments) were deployed in the Greater Golden Horseshoe Area in support of the Games. They reported minute-by-minute observations of the ultraviolet (UV) component of sun exposure as defined by the Global Solar UV Index (UVI). The ultraviolet index or UV Index is an international standard measurement of the strength of sunburn-producing UV radiation at a particular place and time. The readings from these sensors were used to inform the operational forecast program, particularly to provide data for validation of the UV index forecasts from the Environment and Climate Change Canada numerical modelling system.

Environment and Climate Change Canada added 40 compact stations, 10 ATMOS stations and 3 standard automated MSC Auto8 stations to the existing networks to form a high-resolution monitoring system across southern Ontario known as the Mesonet. These stations provided both high-density spacing and high-frequency minute-by-minute observations. Standard meteorological variables were reported—atmospheric pressure, wind speed and direction, relative humidity, temperature and precipitation amounts—as well as a new element recorded by a black globe thermometer, used in the evaluation of heat stress on the human body. The new automated surface weather stations were configured to report every minute, a sharp departure from the standard hourly reporting.

The Pan and Parapan American Games are a regional international summer sporting event, staged every 4 years in the year prior to the Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games. The 2015 Games were awarded to Canada on November 6, 2009, by the Pan American Sports Organization. The XVII Pan American Games and the V Parapan American Games were held in Toronto, Canada, from July 10–26, 2015, and from August 7–15, 2015, respectively. Canada welcomed the 40 other countries/nations of the Americas to Toronto and the municipalities of the Greater Golden Horseshoe Area in Ontario where the summer sports events of the 2015 Pan and Parapan American Games were hosted.

This document provides Canadians with an annual summary of selected maritime safety data. It covers commercial vessels, which include all vessels registered or licensed to operate commercially. Pleasure craft occurrences are not normally included unless they also involve a commercial vessel. The TSB gathers and uses this data during the course of our investigations to analyze safety deficiencies and identify risks in the Canadian transportation system.

The spatial planning framework for Canada's national network of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) is comprised of 13 ecologically defined bioregions that cover Canada's oceans and the Great Lakes. Note that the geographic boundaries for the bioregions are fuzzy and may change based on ecosystemic conditions. Detailed descriptions and discussions on the federal network of marine bioregions can be found in:

Marine protected areas (MPAs) are one among a number of spatial management tools, and are defined as areas that are established for the long-term, and managed through legal or other effective means, to achieve the long-term conservation of nature with associated ecosystem services and cultural values.

Currently, Fisheries and Oceans Canada has a number of MPAs designated under the Oceans Act and Areas of Interest for new MPAs at various stages of progress towards designation. These areas are ecologically significant, with species and/or features that require special management consideration. 

An Oceans Act MPA can be established for any of the six conservation purposes outlined in the Act:

• The conservation and protection of commercial and non-commercial fishery resources, including marine mammals, and their habitats; 

• The conservation and protection of endangered or threatened marine species, and their habitats; 

• The conservation and protection of unique habitats; 

• The conservation and protection of marine areas of high biodiversity or biological productivity;

• The conservation and protection of any other marine resource or habitat as is necessary to fulfill the mandate of the Minister; and

• The conservation and protection of marine areas for the purposes of maintaining ecological integrity

Mesoscale boundaries have an important influence on mesoscale weather. They can trigger, enhance or inhibit convections and severe weather. They are also indicators of shifts in wind speed and direction, temperature and relative humidity, and can affect air quality and heat indices. Around the Great Lakes, it has been observed that mesoscale boundaries are prevalent and can have complex interactions between each other.
