Marine Atlantic

Marine Atlantic is an independent Canadian federal Crown corporation which is mandated to operate ferry services between the provinces of Newfoundland and Labrador and Nova Scotia.

The company operates ferries across the Cabot Strait on two routes: North Sydney, Nova Scotia to Port aux Basques, Newfoundland and Labrador and North Sydney, Nova Scotia to Argentia, Newfoundland and Labrador

Marine Atlantic was established in 1986 to take over the provision of ferry services in Atlantic Canada, services which had previously been operated by CN Marine, a subsidiary of Canadian National Railway.

In 1997, the company transferred the operation of its Bay of Fundy and Gulf of Maine ferry services between Saint John, New Brunswick-Digby, Nova Scotia and Yarmouth, Nova Scotia-Bar Harbor, Maine to the private-sector company Bay Ferries Limited.
