Hamilton Port Authority

The Port of Hamilton is the largest Canadian port on the Great Lakes and handles more than 10 million tonnes of highly diversified cargo annually. The port was built on a long tradition of moving bulk and breakbulk cargo. From its earliest days, after the first canal was built in 1832 to connect Hamilton Harbour to Lake Ontario, bulk and breakbulk commodities have been imported and exported through Hamilton. With its deep water access, growing industrial base, the advent of the steam-powered engine in the mid-1800s and the introduction of the railway, Hamilton established itself as a marine transportation hub.
