A Provincial Job Creation Program at the Harbour on Monday. December 8, 2002 with an eleven week time frame was completed

The work schedule included general cleanup of the harbour area. The mess was the result of a storm that battered the harbour on November 25 th. Through the gratious cooperation of The Port au Port Economic Development Association and MHA Gerald Smith's office, we were able to get alot of the minor cleanup done before the heart of winter set it. Five workers were provided to us.

Section 25 Program May 26, 2003

Our Section 25 program underwent an environmental assessment study on the program's goal of tapping into nearby Rouzes Brook to provide high pressure water , both at the loading dock on the lower wharf and at the warehouse. This project also provided for four workers. The project lasted for 5 weeks.

High pressure water now available is a manditory requirement and the previous water supply was unable to provide this.
