So 811 charts (1722 including sub-charts) are available in the Canada CHS layer. (see coverage)

Note : CHS has some charts only available in paper but unavailable in digital form, especially in the Arctic part : this concerns a number of old charts in which the horizontal datum is either unknown or is so poorly positioned that these charts are unusable with modern precise positioning technology.

These updates are right now automatically viewable on mobile applications :

Note : don't forget to visit Notices to Mariners; published monthly and available from the Canadian Coast Guard both online or through a free hardcopy subscription service.
This essential publication provides the latest information on changes to the aids to navigation system, as well as updates from CHS regarding CHS charts and publications.
