for harbour authorities

Two mini-forums for harbour authorities were held in February 2011 in response to the wish expressed by some harbour authority representatives and the Regional Small Craft Harbour Branch.

The first of these mini-forums, held last February 1 and 2 in Sept-Îles, brought together representatives from Quebec’s Anglophone harbour authorities.  The second one, in Matane on February 22 and 23, brought together representatives from harbour authorities on the North Shore and the northern portion of the Gaspé Peninsula. A third mini-forum will be organised in fall 2011 for representatives from the Magdalen Islands and the southern portion of the Gaspé Peninsula.

A variety of topics are discussed during these meetings, notably issues surrounding the use of winches, cranes and conveyors, the legal agreements governing the occupation of harbour sites, regulations dealing with oil product storage reservoirs and environmental management systems.

These mini-forums give participants the opportunity to discuss topics that are important to them, best practices and their projects. In fact, the small size of the groups fosters discussion.

Holding these mini-forums regularly allows harbour authority managers to speak directly with sector representatives. In this way, they receive information on regional and national harbour authority advisory committees and on general issues pertaining to the harbour and harbour authority programs.
