What is the Public Right of Navigation?
The Canadian public right of navigation is not written anywhere – it is a right that has developed over time through Common Law. If the waters are navigable, then the public has the right to navigate. Gaining approval to restrict the public's right to navigate can only be done a few ways, including an Act of Parliament.
