New Investments in Tignish Harbor
Gail Shea, the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, announced today an investment to improve working conditions for fishermen at Tignish Harbor in Prince Edward Island.
“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 harbors, local economies and foster job creation,” said Shea.
Funding for this project will be used to dredge and realign the channel, install shore protection, replace an existing wharf in the boat basin and to construct a new marginal wharf.
These improvements will provide safer navigation and additional berthage capacity in the harbor.
