Stewart World Port receives support for infrastructure

571 Stewart world port 2


The Government of Canada has announced a major investment of $13.1 million to increase capacity at the Stewart World Port (SWP) and improve the shipment of Canadian goods to overseas markets from Northern British Columbia, Yukon, Alberta and Saskatchewan to SWP instead of trucking or shipping by rail to other western marine port locations. The project includes installing bulk loading conveyor systems and power and control facilities at SWP.  An estimated 275 jobs will be created in the region during construction and once completed, the improved trade corridor will reduce greenhouse gas emissions with the more efficient movement of cargo.
