Through a series of round tables and meetings, this review will include engagement activities with Indigenous peoples, port authorities, provincial governments, municipalities, broader domestic and international marine sector stakeholders and Canadians, Garneau said.
Transport Canada wants to hear what Canadians and marine stakeholders have to say about how the ports can respond to current and future challenges and opportunities. The public is invited to provide feedback and input on the review. Information is available here.
Submissions are due Sept. 7 this year.
Findings of the review, expected in 2019, will identify potential policy, legislative and regulatory changes to help port authorities consolidate their position as key players in the Canadian economy, Garneau said.
