“Our goal is to create a new destination for recreation, tourism, and economic development,” said Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie, who identified the marina expansion as the area’s top infrastructure priority. She stated that the local neighborhood is “very supportive” of the idea despite predicted construction upheavals.
Following the conclusion of the environmental assessment, a further project update and final round of public discussions on the marina project are planned for later this year.
The Port Credit Harbour Marina, with over 500 rental berths, is a prominent leisure boating destination in the region. It currently operates a dealership, retail, storage, and refit yard on 18 acres of shoreline and 49 acres on Lake Ontario. In recent years, and notably in the last 18 months, demand for marina slips and marine facilities has surged tremendously in the Toronto area.
