Your Input
One component of BC Ferries' vessel procurement program is a requirement to file a Section 55 application with the BC Ferry Commissioner, who would then determine if the capital expenditure is reasonably required. BC Ferries has included all input emailed to vesselreplacement@bcferries.com with our Section 55 application to the Commissioner. Thank you for your comments and submissions.
