Lobbying for a bigger wharf began approx 40 years ago. During phase one a funding announcement was made in April 2015 by Peter MacKay. The contract was awarded to Alva Construction and work was started in the fall of 2015. The new wharf was completed in the spring of 2017.
During phase two a funding announcement came in the fall of 2016. The contract was again awarded to Alva Construction and work started in the summer of 2017. This began with the demolition of the old wharf and was completed by the summer of 2018.
In 2020 a new slipway (boat haulout) was installed on the west side of the new wharf. This was a great addition to the Harbour Authority, and to the community, giving everyone better access to launching boats and recreational watercraft.
In the spring of 2020, there were 12 fishermen who fished out of the Havre Boucher harbour. They fish a two month season, from May 1 to June 30. Fishermen are allowed to fish a maximum amount of 255 traps each. In the summer time recreational boats can also dock at the new facility, we have hosted many boats from sailboats to yachts from people all across the world.
