The Maritime Simulation and Resource Centre (MSRC) is a leader in training and development, and holds unique expertise in navigational safety in North America.

It is open to all members of the maritime community, whether for training, professional development or the validation of economic development projects. It offers a stimulating work environment and an atmosphere conducive to learning and the exchange of knowledge.

As a component of the Corporation of Lower St. Lawrence Pilots (CLSLP), the Centre's mission is to ensure training for apprentice pilots and development programs for CLSLP pilots in all aspects of piloting within their district. The MSRC also offers development courses for pilots from other piloting districts and welcomes other professional navigators who wish to learn new techniques or upgrade their skills.
