Board of Directors

Directors are appointed to the Strait Superport Board from a broad cross-section of marine expertise in the Strait area.  The members serve on a volunteer basis and as a result, the Board is comprised of directors that show great leadership and dedication to their community.

The Superport Corporation takes an inclusive approach to Board membership.  The groups that are represented on the Board include: shippers (3), ship service providers (2), municipalities bordering the Strait of Canso (5), provincial government (1), Strait Area Chamber of Commerce (1), and the federal government (1).
