Important Investments in New Brunswick Harbors

The Honorable Gail Shea, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, joined by Robert Goguen, Member of Parliament for Moncton-Riverview-Dieppe, announced yesterday that the Government of Canada will invest $ 74.3 million over the next two years to improve safety and working conditions for fishermen at harbors in New Brunswick.

For generations, hard-working Canadian men and women have made their livelihood from our waters. Without question, small craft harbors are the cornerstone of the commercial fishing industry. This announcement is part of our Government’s ongoing commitment to support our fishermen and the harbors where they work, local economies and foster job creation,” said Shea.

More than $7.5 million of this total investment will support the following harbor projects:

– Botsford – replacement of a deteriorated wharf;

– Cap-des-Caissie – upgrades to electrical system;

– Cape Tormentine – replacement of a deteriorated wharf;

– Cap-Lumière (Richibucto Cape) – repairs to wharf and channel maintenance dredging;

– Petit-Cap – replacement of a deteriorated wharf;

– Richibucto – replacement of a barricaded breakwater wharf;

– Barre-de-Cocagne – repairs to a deteriorated wharf;

– Cap-de-Saint-Louis – regular maintenance dredging;

– Chockpish – regular maintenance dredging;

– Cap-Pelé (Les Aboiteaux) – regular maintenance dredging;

– Saint-Édouard-de-Kent – regular maintenance dredging of the harbor basin and channel.
