Senator David Wells, on behalf of the Honourable Gail Shea, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, announced today that the Government of Canada will invest in improvement projects at three Newfoundland and Labrador small craft harbours.
This funding will provide a safer and more efficient working environment for fishermen and harbour users.
This investment of up to $3.17 million will enable the following projects to be undertaken over the next two years:
- Flatrock – reinforcement of the existing breakwater and installation of a spray wall;
- Change Islands – reconstruction of the wharf adjacent to the fish plant;
- Sweet Bay – construction of a concrete launchway.
