TORONTO, Oct. 25, 2013 /CNW/ - The Toronto Port Authority's Outer
Harbour Marina (OHM) is wrapping up another successful boating season
following several service and infrastructure improvements.
"The Outer Harbour Marina is one of the city's most modern, and the
improvements we've made to it over the past year have served to enhance
the customer experience," says Toronto Port Authority (TPA) President
and CEO Geoffrey Wilson.
In 2013, the Marina was almost filled to capacity welcoming 650 boaters
to its docks, with 100 being transient boaters visiting the city.
At the end of the 2012 boating season, the TPA opened the city's first
heated indoor boat storage, making the OHM the only marina in Toronto
with these facilities. Other improvements include:
Upgrading the remainder of the Marina's 625 docks to a new, state-of-the
art docking system that accommodates boats up to 100 feet
Opening of a barbeque pavilion
Creation of new a paved parking lot
A new sales and service office operated by True North Yachts
In 2014 the TPA will make several infrastructure improvements including
an upgrade to the OHM's Wi-Fi system. Additionally there will more food
truck days at the OHM in 2014, which proved to be extremely popular
among boaters this year.
The OHM has maintained its 5 Green Anchor Gold rating from the Ontario
Marina Operators Association, for the second year in a row and is one
of the few marinas in the province with this designation. This
designation recognizes marinas that follow strict environmental best
