Founded in 2005, the Maritime Simulation and Resource Centre (MSRC) is a purpose-built marine pilot simulation training and turnkey port procedural development facility, offering unique navigational safety expertise in North America. Created, designed, owned and operated by working marine pilots, the MSRC is a world-class facility which fulfills the training needs of the four Canadian Pilotage Authorities regrouping 100 % of the Canadian pilots as well as pilots from the United States, Mexico and South America. With its four fully instrumented navigation bridges, MSRC has the capability to provide interactive scenarios with manned tug and large vessel simulations, including Post-Panamax ships, which allow pilots to practice their manoeuvring techniques and enhance their skills. In-house capabilities for building pilot-grade ship models (over 100 ship models) and customized geographic databases, enables port development stakeholders to take an active part in determining risk mitigation and validation of new and existing infrastructure upgrades. MSRC is a division of the Corporation of Lower St. Lawrence Pilots and an official training institution for the PPU software developed by SEAiq.
