  • 495.9 million in aggregate revenue in 2013 fiscal year
  • 182.4 million in operating income in 2013
  • Over $400 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)
