Transport Canada to review port authority system


Canada's Minister of Transport Marc Garneau has announced a review of the nation's port system and its ability to compete in a changing global marketplace.

Through a series of round tables and meetings, the review will include feedback from Indigenous peoples, Canada Port Authorities, provincial governments, municipalities, broader domestic and international marine sector stakeholders, and Canadians, Garneau said in a press release.

"A lot has changed since Canada Port Authorities were established 20 years ago," he said. "This change is expected to continue at an ever increasing pace. This is why we need to re-examine the Canada Port Authority system to ensure Canada is always well positioned to innovate and compete for years to come."

Transport Canada is soliciting public comments on the review. Information is available at the port authority modernization review website.

Expected in 2019, the review's findings will be used to shape potential policy, legislation or regulatory changes.
