  • 8.2% increase from 2010-2012

  • $118.6 million in 2011 operating income
  • $162 billion worth of goods
  • 250,000 direct and indirect jobs
  • $10.2 billion in salaries
  • $25 billion added to Canada’s GDP
  • $2.2 billion paid in federal and provincial income taxes
  • $2 billion paid in consumption tax
  • Port authorities represent 60% of Canadian maritime exports (2011)
