On August 9, 2019, the vessel RCGS Resolute was arrested for several hours after anchoring in call port Iqaluit (Baffin Island, Nunavut Canada). The ship was seized after Nunavut's police received a warrant from Halifax' Federal Court.

The claim was filed by Atship Services Ltd (1994-founded, Nova Scotia-based port agency) and listed as defendants the shipowner (Bunnys Adventure and Cruise Shipping/Bahamas-based) and the ship charterer (One Ocean Expeditions/BC Canada-based).
