Harbour gets funds

Funding announced for Port McNeill harbour under small crafts program.

PORT MCNEILL—John Duncan, Member of Parliament for Vancouver Island North, announced last week that the harbour in Port McNeill will be receiving funding for improvements through the small craft harbours program.

“Our investment in the harbour in Port McNeill will keep [users] safe and accessible for those who depend on it to earn a living and support their families.”

Work planned for Port McNeill harbour includes electrical service repair.


Repair and improvement projects are undertaken at harbours across the country by Fisheries and Oceans Canada, as part of its Small Craft Harbours Program, in cooperation with the local harbour authorities that manage and operate facilities for local users. Close cooperation between the Department and harbour authorities allows the government to continue to provide an operable system of harbours and facilities throughout Canada in support of commercial fish harvesters.
