Fanny Bay Harbour Authority receives national award

2012 Small Craft Harbours Prix d'Excellence in achievement

The Fanny Bay Harbour Authority has received a prestigious honour from the federal government — a 2012 Small Craft Harbours Prix d’Excellence National Harbour Authority Achievement Award.

Only two such awards were handed out nationally to harbour authorities, said Vancouver Island North MP John Duncan, who made the presentation at the Fanny Bay wharf Wednesday on behalf of Fisheries and Oceans Minister Keith Ashfield.

“There’s been about $2 million invested, most of that federal money,” Duncan said, noting the money went toward infrastructure. “It’s just a marvellous operation. It’s changed the economics of the shellfish industry down here, and their ability to plan and schedule loading and offloading.”

Duncan said there are about 550 harbour authorities in Canada.
