For more than 500 years, St. John’s has been an important centre of marine activity which has contributed to the development of a network of core industries and spin-off businesses that create activity and drive the port forward.
The St. John’s Port Authority is proud of the port’s continuing evolution as a strategic centre for trade and commerce. We continue to invest in infrastructure and improved access, having confidence in our strong local economy and in the commitment of industry partners such as Oceanex, A. Harvey and Company, MI Swaco, and Newdock, just to name a few.
Of course, a strategic location, partnerships and world-class facilities are only part of our story. Because of the growth of the industries that benefit from its capabilities, the Port of St. John’s is making a real and positive impact on the success of our users and stakeholders and on our economy. The result is the creation of thousands of local jobs, the benefit of which is felt in our communities and in the working lives of the people of Newfoundland and Labrador.
