The Nanaimo Port Authority has the mandate to administer, control, and manage the harbour, waters and foreshore of the Georgia Strait in an area adjacent to Nanaimo, British Columbia. The port strives to be competitive and continue its role as a catalyst for improvement of the Nanaimo waterfront.
The directors of a port authority shall have generally acknowledged and accepted stature within the transportation industry or the business community and relevant knowledge and extensive experience related to the management of a business, to the operation of a port or to maritime trade.
The board of directors is comprised of representatives appointed by the federal, provincial and municipal governments, and is broadly responsible for setting the strategic direction for, and overseeing the conduct and operations of the port authority. The board of directors appoints the port authority’s chief executive officer, monitors management’s performance, ensures internal controls are in place to manage risks associated with the port authority’s business, and oversees the port authority’s finances and accuracy of financial reporting.
Further details about the organization and its activities can be found on the Nanaimo Port Authority website.
