$44M for Small Craft Harbours in New Brunswick

The Government of Canada has just announced a major investment in Small Craft Harbors Infrastructure in the Province of New Brunswick.

With more than 76,000 Canadians employed in this sector, the Government is making investments that will continue to support the growth of this industry and provide economic opportunities for middle-class Canadians.

The announcement was made yesterday by Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard, Member of Parliament, Beauséjour, saying that the Government of Canada is investing $44 million this year to carry out major improvement projects at more than 30 small craft harbors in New Brunswick.

$5.5 million of this funding will be invested at ten local harbors in the south-east part of the province. Three of these harbors will see their investment extend into future years for an additional $2.4 million.

As part of this investment, the two marginal wharves and launching ramp at Petit-Cap will be reconstructed. This work, which is expected to be completed by the summer of 2017, will provide a safe working environment for harbor users over the long term.

Projects being carried out over the next two years at other small craft harbors in south-east New Brunswick include:

  • Barre-de-Cocagne (Cormierville) – Construction of a new marginal wharf and completion of a project to reconstruct the main wharf and add armour stone protection;
  • Botsford (Murray Corner) – Completion of a project to reconstruct the wharf;
  • Cap-de-Saint-Louis – Dredging of the channel;
  • Cap-Lumière (Richibucto Cape) – Dredging of the basin and channel as well as the completion of a project to remove the pier wharf and install floating wharves;
  • Cape Tormentine – Completion of a project to replace the existing marginal wharf with a new wharf;
  • Chockpish (Côte-Sainte-Anne) – Dredging of the channel;
  • Les Aboiteaux (Cap-Pelé) – Dredging of the channel and the basin, and upgrade and resurface the access road;
  • Richibucto – Completion of a project to reconstruct a section of the main outer wharf;
  • Saint-Édouard-de-Kent – Dredging of the channel.
