Steveston Harbour Authority was honoured with the 2016 Richmond Chamber of Commerce Business Leadership Award on November 30, 2016.
Steveston Harbour Authority was bestowed with this prestigious award in recognition of several initiatives, including:
- development of industry leading policies and procedures that have spread through the Harbour Authority Association of British Columbia to become standard models for most of the 54 harbours along the B.C. coast;
- extensive community involvement including developing close working relationship with local law enforcement and emergency response agencies, supporting local charities and festivals, and hosting the annual Fishermen Helping Kids with Cancer Herring Sale;
- pioneering a fishing net recycling program that has helped change attitudes in the treatment of old and disused nets, transforming them from an environmental problem to a recyclable solution.
