Investment in Small Craft Harbours in Prince Edward Island
As part of a $51.7 million investment in small craft harbours across the country in 2012-2013, the Government of Canada will provide $3.5 million to repair and maintain fishing harbours in Prince Edward Island.
Major projects being funded under the program include:
- wharf reconstruction at Howards Cove;
- wharf repairs at Graham Pond;
- wharf repairs and realignment at North Lake;
- engineering work for a wharf reconstruction project at Tignish Run / Judes Point;
- breakwater improvements and dredging at Skinners Pond; and
- dredging at Malpeque Cove (Malpeque), Naufrage, North Lake, Tracadie and West Point.
Minor repair and maintenance projects, studies and planning will also be carried out at fishing harbours throughout the province.
Additionally, work will continue at harbours that were damaged by storms in 2010. In 2011, the Federal Government invested $71.6 million over three years towards the repair of harbours affected by Hurricane Igor in Newfoundland, the Manitoba “Weather Bomb,” and the 2010 December storms in Atlantic Canada and Quebec.
