Regulatory

The Hamilton-Oshawa Port Authority (HOPA Ports) is a Canada Port Authority; a non-share capital corporation reporting to a Board of Directors.

As a Canada Port Authority, HOPA Ports’ mandate is to enable trade through our network of ports and port lands, while protecting the environment and considering local communities.

Port authority operations are not financed by tax dollars. We earn revenues from tenant rents and harbour dues. We own and manage lands in support of national trade objectives for the benefit of the national and local economies.
