Halifax Port Authority Launches Public Consultation on Infrastructure Plans

Halifax, NS, March 21, 2019 – The Halifax Port Authority (HPA) is undertaking an important online consultation to determine the future of the Port of Halifax as Canada’s Ultra Atlantic Gateway.

The HPA undertook a comprehensive infrastructure planning process in starting 2016 to determine the best way for the Port of Halifax to capitalize on the significant transformation underway in the containerized cargo business. Every level of government, members of the public, customers, stakeholders, and port planning experts have all been involved in assessing the available options to take the Port of Halifax to the next level.

Through this interactive online engagement tool, everyone will have the opportunity to learn about the ongoing infrastructure planning process and share views on the Port’s future, expansion options, decision-making priorities, and initiatives that contribute to a more vibrant, livable city.

The online platform will be open until April 18, 2019. The Halifax Port Authority will incorporate public feedback from this process to inform planning and in-person engagements later in 2019.
