$18.5 Million for Seven Harbors Across Labrador

Yvonne Jones, Member of Parliament for Labrador, on behalf of Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard, recently announced that the Government of Canada is investing $18.5 million in seven small craft harbor improvement projects across Labrador.

I’m pleased to announce this investment in Labrador’s small craft harbours. Investing in the local infrastructure helps not just the commercial fishing industry, but the communities in Labrador as a whole,” said Yvonne Jones. “The work carried out will not only renew and maintain the infrastructure that is essential to the region, but also stimulate job opportunities that will benefit fishermen and support our local communities.”

Included in the funding are:

  • Charlottetown (Labrador) Harbor
    The main fishermen’s wharf in the vicinity of the shrimp plant in this NunatuKavut community will be expanded to ensure that fishers have safe berthing and offloading facilities within the harbor. The work is scheduled for completion by 2020.
  • Cartwright Harbor
    The main fishermen’s wharf in this NunatuKavut community will be extended to ensure that fishers have safe berthing and offloading facilities within the harbor. The work is scheduled for completion by 2020.
  • Mary’s Harbor
    A breakwater in this NunatuKavut community will be constructed to protect the harbour’s small boat basin to ensure safe berthing for users of the floating docks. The work is scheduled for completion by 2019.
  • Cape Charles (Lodge Bay)
    A dilapidated slipway will be demolished and removed. The work is scheduled for completion by late 2018.
  • Battle Harbor
    Funding will go to completing a two-year project to reconstruct the wharf in this historic fishing community. Scheduled completion by October 2018.
  • Makkovik Harbor
    The marginal wharf and a portion of the finger pier in this Inuit community is being reconstructed to ensure that fishers have safe berthing and offloading facilities within the harbor. Another component of the project involves the construction of a protected small boat basin with a parking area, treated timber head blocks, and floating docks. The work is scheduled for completion by the end of 2018.
  • Red Bay Harbor
    The wharf will be repaired in preparation for the transfer of the Small Craft Harbors site to the Town of Red Bay for use primarily as a cruise ship destination.
