New $75-million Port Credit marina project is moving forward

Port Credit Harbour

Oct 5, 2021

According to digital news outlet www.insuaga.com, a new, full-service and modern Port Credit marina that will bring huge economic benefits to Mississauga is now one step closer to becoming a reality.

After a year-long wait, City of Mississauga officials learned that Ontario’s Ministry of the Environment had approved terms of reference for the required environmental assessment (EA) of the $75-million project.

The waterfront overhaul seeks to maximize the location’s advantage as Lake Ontario’s deepest natural harbour in making a new-look Port Credit Harbour a destination place that would attract boaters from all over. Hopefully, boaters would spend the day in Port Credit shopping and dining.

The environmental assessment must be approved by the Ontario government and while that goes on, Mississauga is looking to provincial and federal governments for money to complete the redevelopment plan, termed by City staff the 1 Port Street East Proposed Marina Project.

Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie has identified the Port Credit marina undertaking as one of Mississauga’s top two infrastructure priorities, the other being the re-instatement of a downtown loop as part of the Hurontario light rapid transit project.

She added the surrounding community is “incredibly supportive” of the plan, and that beyond the marina, the City is looking to create new land for parks and access to the waterfront.

“Our goal is to create a new destination for recreation, tourism and economic development,” said Crombie.
