Project Description:
The Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada - Small Craft Harbours (DFO-SCH) intends to construct a new Small Craft Harbour (the Project) in Clyde River, Nunavut. As with most SCH facilities, the primary function of the Project is to provide safe and accessible facilities for the community to pursue the local livelihood, including marine fish and mammal harvesting, and provide infrastructure needed to develop commercial fisheries. The proposed Project will include new breakwaters, a shoreline revetment to protect against erosion and storm surge, floating wharves, new fixed wharf for larger vessels, community boat launch, sealift beside the SCH, a new laydown area for storage of materials and goods, mooring bollard, harbour lighting, and aids to navigation.
