Construction starts on new Canadian Coast Guard Response Depot

November 06, 2020

Construction has begun on a new 10,800 square foot environmental response depot in Port Hardy, B.C. Funded under the Government of Canada’s Oceans Protection Plan, the new facility will strengthen the Canadian Coast Guard’s capacity to respond to marine pollution incidents in the areas of northern Vancouver Island and the central coast of British Columbia.


The new building and property will provide office space, storage space for environmental response, vessel, and Aids to Navigation equipment, and a large drive-on floating dock for easy loading of specialized pollution response vessels and other Coast Guard ships. Specially trained environmental response staff have been working out of a temporary facility in Port Hardy since 2018.
