The east float at Vanier Park boat launch

Vanier Park boat launch float repairs

The repairs at the Vanier Park boat launch floats are now complete and both east and west ramps and floats are open.

The floats were damaged during the 2021 and 2022 storm events.

The major repairs have restored the west float for launching and retrieving small craft boats and increased the float’s resiliency to tidal conditions.

The minor repairs to the east float will allow the public to launch and retrieve non-motorized human-powered vessels like kayaks and canoes.
