=========================== FOLLOWING PSMSL DOCUMENTATION ADDED 01-Sep-2011 :
From the 'Fisheries and Oceans Canada' website benchmarks 18 1974 4.244m above
CD last inspected and 20 1975 7.547m above CD are both classed as Primary
=========================== FOLLOWING PSMSL DOCUMENTATION ADDED 27-Jul-2015 :
This year, rather than just sending the latest year of data, the complete dataset has been supplied. This has highlighted some differences in the data. From communications in the correspondence file for 2002 it appears that the Oceans and Fisheries meant to supply revised data for the stations supplied. This did not happen. The complete dataset includes these data revisions. Therefore, the whole dataset has now been re-entered.
=========================== FOLLOWING PSMSL DOCUMENTATION ADDED 30-Jul-2015 :
Historic data was included in the above complete dataset. The datum for 1906 is currently being queried. Until the Fisheries and Oceans Canada confirm the datum this data has been made Metric.
=========================== FOLLOWING PSMSL DOCUMENTATION ADDED 28-Jun-2016 :
The datum for the 1906 historic data cannot be confirmed so the data remains Metric.
