The Government of Canada is making a $106 million investment in small craft harbours across the country. This funding includes $66 million in regular program funding for the Small Craft Harbours Program in 2014-15 and $40 million over two years from Economic Action Plan 2014.
This year, funding is being provided to carry out a project at the small craft harbour in Pangnirtung, Nunavut, which came into service in the summer of 2013. The project at Pangnirtung consists of the installation of floating timber wharves.
Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s Small Craft Harbours Program is a nationwide program mandated to keep the harbours that are critical to the fishing industry open and in good repair.
