The St. John’s Port Authority is proud to play an active role in the community in which we live and work. Here are just a few highlights of our involvement:
Harbour Lights Fundraiser The St. John’s Port Authority’s annual “Harbour Lights” Christmas fundraiser generates funds to assist the School Lunch Association in preparing more than 660,000 meals per year for distribution throughout 25 local schools. The 2015 event was a tremendous success, thanks in large part to our port users and community partner, Pipers Department Stores.

Investing in Youth The St. John’s Port Authority awards annual scholarships across the province to deserving students who are beginning post-secondary studies.
Special Events Throughout the year we host a full calendar of events. In a city that is a hotspot for local art and culture, the port is a unique backdrop for a variety of music events, television broadcasts and film shoots. We participate in the signature event of the internationally renowned Sound Symposium: the Harbour Symphony features original music composed for and performed by ships’ horns.
We host historic commemorations throughout the year, such as the annual service for the Battle of the Atlantic.
In 2010, we welcomed the family of heroic Canadian Terry Fox as they marked the 30th anniversary of his courageous attempt to run across Canada—a legendary run that started right here.
