Description: The contribution to the Oshawa Harbour Commission is part of the settlement agreement between the City of Oshawa and the Crown. The funding will be used to transfer more industrial activities at the Port of Oshawa from the west wharf to the east wharf, and to cover fencing and landscaping costs. However, the contribution is being made to the Oshawa Harbour Commission because it is the most appropriate entity to oversee and manage construction on Oshawa Harbour Crown lands, since the commission already administers and manages the Crown’s port lands. This transfer payment program does not include repayable contributions.

Expected Results: The contribution is expected to have the following results:

  • Users of the city’s parks and residential areas will be shielded from the port’s industrial operations once the fencing and landscaping projects are complete; and, 
  • Capacity and facilities on the east wharf will be increased to allow the transfer of the port’s more industrial activities from the west wharf to the east wharf. This will be measured through the completion of the port consolidation projects.
