INVESTMENTS
IN COMMERCIAL FISHING HARBOURS IN QUEBEC
DFO M. Langlois

Last May 4, the Member of Parliament for Lévis-Bellechasse, Steven Blaney, was in Carleton-sur-Mer to announce the investments. “Our government recognizes that safe and efficient harbours are vital to the economic well-being of many fishing communities in Quebec,” said Mr. Blaney. “By investing in small craft harbours, our government is creating local jobs right way and ensuring Quebec fish harvesters can rely on improved harbours for the years to come.”

Fisheries and Oceans Canada will invest $29 million in its network of small craft harbours in Quebec.

Over the next two years, $22.5 million – provided via Canada’s Economic Action Plan – will be spent to step up repair and maintenance work at several commercial fishing harbours on the Magdalen Islands, the North Shore and the Gaspé Peninsula.

This amount comes in addition to the $6.5 million already allocated under the regular program for small craft harbours for a range of work that is to be done on harbour infrastructure in 2009.
