Major news for the Magdalen Islands: the federal government announces an envelope of $40 million over four years for the reconstruction of the obsolete fishermen's wharf in the port of Cap-aux-Meules.< /strong>
The wharf, which had already required major improvements for some time, will thus be demolished and then rebuilt from 2022-2023.
“The port of Cap-aux -Meules is vital for the Madelinots, their well-being and the local economy, said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during this announcement on Friday in the Islands. The funding we are announcing today will help create good jobs and economic opportunities for years to come.”
In a statement released on the occasion of the announcement, the government states that “ the fishermen's wharf in the port of Cap-aux-Meules was built around fifty years ago and has almost reached the end of its operational life cycle”.
