The federal government is investing 33 million in 35 small craft harbours across British Columbia.

Those harbours include Gibsons and Powell River.

The feds say the investment aims to renew the network of small craft harbours, and to repair, maintain and build key harbours across the country.

Officials say renewing and maintaining marine infrastructure supports local communities by creating jobs and opportunities that will benefit fish harvesters, their families, residents, and visitors while facilitating growth in the tourism sector.
