Port Saint John is Forging Ahead

SAINT JOHN (NB) – Port Saint John’s Annual General Meeting was held this week.

The event, attended by stakeholders, staff and community members highlighted the Port’s accomplishments over the previous year and plans going forward.

“In 2013, the Port experienced unprecedented growth. More than numbers on paper, these figures embody the drive an entire network has to succeed. Port Saint John is a small team, just 29 people strong. But, it’s the strength of our team propelling the Port forward. Outside our walls, the Port community at large is working toward the same goal – grow business through the Port,” Peter Gaulton, chair of Port Saint John, said.
