The development programs, led by Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s Small Craft Harbors program, involve dredging the east side basin of the harbor to create room for additional floating wharves.

Work on the project will be carried out this fiscal year and next, said the Government.

Planning has been carried out in close consultation with the Grand Manan Harbor Authority.

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

With approximately 45,000 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.
