Port of Shelburne
You are here: Home >> AREA >> Port of Shelburne
The Port of Shelburne is unique among rural ports in Atlantic Canada, boasting a diversified client base that includes a large commercial fishing fleet and on-site fish processing plant, an independent fishing fleet and a regular cargo/container service that links the port to Europe and the coastal United States.
A new business plan, recently approved by the Port Authority and Town Council, details plans for an expansion of the port facilities to include increased large container shipping services, smaller container services, cruise ships and a ferry service to Boston or another U.S. port.
The developed port can also be considered a shipping hub for regional manufacturing and industries, including mining operations, tire manufacturing and petroleum-related shipping.
