Funding Announced for Nova Scotia Harbors

The Government of Canada will be investing $42 million in small craft harbor improvement and transfer projects across Nova Scotia over the next three years.

The announcement was made by Scott Brison, President of the Treasury Board and Member of Parliament for Kings─Hants, on behalf of Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard, last Friday, August 17.

Coastal communities across Canada are supported by small craft harbors that provide the commercial fishing industry with safe and accessible facilities.

With approximately 44,000 Canadians employed in this sector, the Government of Canada is making investments to renew its network of small craft harbors and work with municipalities and other stakeholders where investments and divestitures can enhance local communities.

The investment, covering repairs to 27 small craft harbors across the province, will include:

  • Wharf construction and upgrades
  • Breakwater construction or repairs
  • Dredging
  • Containment cell construction
  • Repairs ahead of divestitures

The Government of Canada is investing $250 million over two years to renew its network of small craft harbors. This is in addition to $100 million that will be invested in 2018-19 for repairs, maintenance, construction, and dredging at core commercial fishing harbors across Canada.
