Reconstruction at Canadian Coast Guard Wharf in Québec
On August 22, 2014, the Honourable Denis Lebel, Minister of Infrastructure, Communities and Intergovernmental Affairs and Minister of the Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec, announced on behalf of the Honourable Gail Shea, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans Canada, a $12 million investment toward the reconstruction of sections 97 and 98 of Queen's Wharf at the Canadian Coast Guard base in Québec.
The improvements will ensure that the Department has the infrastructure required to enhance safety and security on the St. Lawrence River and to maintain and improve icebreaker support and search and rescue services. This investment is part of a major project to upgrade Canadian Coast Guard infrastructures across the country in response to its current and future needs.
Work at Queen's Wharf is set to be completed by the fall of 2016.
