Canada to Modernize Port Saint John’s Westside Terminals

The governments of Canada and New Brunswick are providing more than CAD 136 million (USD 105.1 million) in funding to modernize Port Saint John’s Westside terminals.

The project involves upgrading and consolidating the Rodney and Navy Island terminals to allow the port to accommodate larger vessels.

New operational systems and technology will also be installed to enhance cargo-handling capabilities.

“Once complete, the work will help ensure the port can support growth and meet increasing demand,” according to the government of Canada.

Port Saint John port handles an average of 28 million tonnes of diverse cargo annually and harbours cruise ships in the Canada–New England market.

The total estimated cost of this project is CAD 205 million, with CAD 68.3 million coming from the government of Canada through the New Building Canada Fund’s National Infrastructure Component, and CAD 68.3 million coming from the Province of New Brunswick.

Port Saint John will cover the remainder of the project costs.
