Government of Canada invests in the expansion of the Port of Oshawa


OSHAWA, ON, June 27, 2022 /CNW/ - The Government of Canada is committed to strengthening Canada's trade corridors, which support our supply chains, help grow our economy and ensure its recovery, and create good, middle-class jobs.

Today, the Minister of Transport, the Honourable Omar Alghabra, announced close to $14 million for an export expansion project at the Port of Oshawa. As the recipient, the Hamilton-Oshawa Port Authority is contributing $16 million, representing a total investment of almost $30 million.

With this investment, new infrastructure will be built to modernize operations in the port's main area and position it for growth. Other improvements planned at the port include expanding marine infrastructure, upgrading storage and container terminals, as well as extending and paving roads in the harbour. This project will also increase grain exports and improve the fluidity of deliveries.

The Government of Canada is investing in well-functioning trade corridors to help Canadians compete in key global markets, trade more efficiently with international partners, and keep Canadian supply chains competitive.
