More Money for the Maritimes Harbors Dredging

The Honorable Gail Shea, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans and Regional Minister for Prince Edward Island, announced yesterday that the Government of Canada is investing in seven small craft harbors located in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.

These projects are valued at more than $1.2 million and involve maintenance, repair, construction and dredging in order to ensure that these harbors in the Maritimes continue to operate safely and securely.

The investment supports the following Maritimes region harbor projects:

– Sambro Harbor, Nova Scotia – installation of new floating wharves;

– Cape St. Mary Harbor, Nova Scotia – initial stages of construction of a breakwater and a barrier to prevent infilling;

– Meteghan Harbor, Nova Scotia – installation of an electrical system on the floating wharves;

– Inverness Harbor, Nova Scotia – replacement of floating wharves;

– Glace Bay Harbor, Nova Scotia – installation of a concrete retaining wall, associated gangway and hardware, and two floating wharves;

– Stuart Town Harbor, New Brunswick – installation of new floating wharves;

– Seacow Pond Harbor, Prince Edward Island – channel dredging.

Funding for these projects is part of the Government of Canada’s investment of approximately $106 million in repair, construction, maintenance and dredging projects at small craft harbors across Canada.
