The Canadian government will invest over CA$22 million (US$17.4 million) in the renewal of several harbours in South Western Nova Scotian communities.

The funds will support work to reconstruct the existing breakwater, dredging and pile repairs at the harbour in Wedgeport, as well as other work at harbours in Centreville, Dennis Point, Hampton, Meteghan, and Parker’s Cove. Property will also be acquired to construct a containment cell to manage dredge materials from Centreville, Sandy Cove East, and Little River (Digby Neck) harbours.

These projects are among others being funded in Nova Scotia through the federal government’s Small Craft Harbours program to support the commercial fishing industry and local communities.
