Calendrier des administrations portuaires The 2013 Harbour Authorities Calendar

Back by popular demand after its success this past year is the harbour authorities' 2013 calendar! The theme is Quebec Harbour Authorities – Keeping the environment at heart.

This calendar serves as an important communications tool. It raises awareness of the crucial role that harbour authorities play in community economic development while upholding the highest environmental protection standards in fishing harbours. As a result, more copies will be printed. The calendar will also be distributed to fishers' associations, municipalities and regional county municipalities to promote the services offered by harbour authorities in managing commercial fishing harbours.
