Kingston Inner Harbour Sediment Management Project

The Kingston Inner Harbour (the harbour) Sediment Management Project is a Transport Canada and Parks Canada shared project to manage contaminated sediment within federal water lots in the harbour. The goal is to balance protecting sensitive species, habitats, and valued features while reducing risks associated with contamination. Currently the project is in the planning stage with physical works anticipated to begin in 2027.

The project team acknowledges that the project is located on the treaty and traditional territory of the Anishinaabeg and the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee.

To acknowledge a traditional territory is to recognize its long history, one that predates establishment of European colonies. It is also to acknowledge a territory’s significance for the Indigenous Peoples who lived, and continue to live, upon it and whose practices and spiritual beliefs are intrinsically bound to these lands and waters.
