As part of our response service package, we offer three types of memberships & agreements.

 

Full Membership

Offered to clients that, under the Canada Shipping Act 2001, are required to have an arrangement with a Certified Response Organization. 
These members will receive the full benefits of our response service, including equipment and supplies, throughout the duration of a spill. Full members are entitled to discounts on certain WCMRC rates.

VESSELS
The Bulk and Non-Bulk Oil Ship Membership Agreements are available from the Chamber of Shipping of BC or the Shipping Federation of Canada.

OIL HANDLING FACILITIES
Members that receive or ship product across their dock are also required to pay a Canada Shipping Act legislated bulk oil cargo fee. This is used as the base cash flow to keep the operation in a ready state.

Subscriber Membership

Offered to environmentally-conscious companies that, although not required under the Canada Shipping Act, want to be proactive in their management of potential oil spills. Subscribers can utilize WCMRC’s professional training, contingency plan testing and associated services, with the added advantage of knowing that WCMRC will assist them in the event of a spill.

Third Party Agreement

Offered at the time of a spill when the polluter requires both equipment and personnel to assist in the cleanup. Any company can request assistance, but if they are not already a member they must sign a third party agreement and accept the financial responsibility to cover the cost of the response. Fees for manpower, equipment rental and administration are billed at standard rates.
