to Inspire - to Inform - to Involve

We are pleased to advise you that a Compendium of Funding Sources Available to Harbour Authorities has recently been added to the “Finance and Management” section in the Harbour Authority Toolbox on the Small Craft Harbours website.

There are programs sponsored by the federal and provincial governments that provide funding to not-for-profit organizations as well as initiatives to assist with community-based projects in support of local economies. There could be many reasons why Harbour Authorities may be interested in obtaining additional financial assistance, such as: for a construction project; for improvements to a harbour; to purchase equipment; to help organize an event at the harbour; or to hire a student for the summer. This Compendium proposes potential sources of funding for which Harbour Authorities may be eligible.

In addition to the Compendium, there are several other resources to assist Harbour Authorities with their financial planning; including a Business Planning Guide produced by Small Craft Harbours as well as the Governance and Finance sections of the Harbour Authority Manual. The Guide and Manual are available in the Harbour Authority Toolbox on the Small Craft Harbours website.

We would encourage you to consult the HA Toolbox for your day-to-day management needs. You may find information relevant to you on subjects such as Finance and Management, the Environment, Maintenance, Operations and Governance.
