Canada Port Authorities (CPAs) were established under the Canada Marine Act (CMA) of 1998. Operating at arm’s length from the federal government, Canada’s 17 port authorities manage federal land and waters in support of national trade objectives.
Financially self-sufficient, CPAs are an important part of Canada’s intermodal supply chain system. They help drive our trade economy, while also prioritizing environmental protection and regulatory compliance, and supporting local and regional communities across the country.
