Harbour Authority Recognition Program

Small Craft Harbours launched the Harbour Authority Recognition Program to acknowledge the efforts and accomplishments of harbour authorities across Canada. We recognize the important role they play in the day-to-day management of facilities and in ensuring the existence of safe and accessible harbours.

Recognition is in the form of distinction awards or a prix d'Excellence.

Distinction awards

These awards are managed individually by the Small Craft Harbours program in each of the 5 regions.

The 5 distinction awards include the following:

  2. Harbour Authority Achievement Distinction Award
  3. Harbour Authority Innovation Distinction Award
  4. Long Standing Service Distinction
  5. Up and Comer Distinction Award
