Biographical history

The Yale and New Westminster Pilotage Authority was established under the terms of An Act Respecting Pilotage (1873) within the Department of Marine, Ottawa. In 1904, by Order in Council, the Pilotage District of Yale and New Westminster was divided into two: the New Westminster Pilotage District and the Vancouver Pilotage District. Bill 105 (1914) established the Minister of Marine and Fisheries as the Pilotage Authority. In December 1919, by Order in Council, the Pilotage District of B.C. was established.
