Government of Canada Invests in Harbor Improvement Projects

Hunter Tootoo, Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard announced yesterday in Eastern Passage, Nova Scotia, that the Government of Canada is investing $289 million in small craft harbors across the country in 2016–2017.

The announcement includes $32 million of the $149 million allocated to small craft harbors in Budget 2016.

Small craft harbors are crucial infrastructure for Canada’s commercial fishing industry, providing coastal communities with safe and reliable access points, the Government of Canada said in its announcement.

This investment in Canada’s harbors will support this vital industry by ensuring facilities are in good repair and available for commercial fish harvesters and all harbor users.

Harbor investments across Canada will address infrastructure rust out and operational needs and benefit fish harvesters by ensuring safe berthage and navigational access, as well as adequate wave protection and offloading facilities.

A provincial breakdown of the $289 million investment in small craft harbors will soon follow.
