Canadian Coast Guard opens Hartley Bay Station

Canadian Coast Guard opens Hartley Bay Station

HARTLEY BAY, B.C. – The Canadian Coast Guard and members of the Gitga’at First Nation celebrated the opening of the new Hartley Bay Station in Hartley Bay, B.C. recently.

The Canadian Coast Guard worked closely with the Gitga’at First Nation throughout planning and construction of the new station, located on the southwest shore of Hartley Bay, a release said. The station consists of a station building, a residence with sleeping quarters for six personnel, and a large floating concrete breakwater.

“This investment by the federal government to establish a Canadian Coast Guard Station in Hartley Bay will address a major gap in Canadian Coast Guard coverage between Prince Rupert and Bella Bella. We are very excited to take this relationship between the Gitga’at First Nation and the Canadian Coast Guard to the next level as we work side-by-side to provide an unparalleled level of protection for mariners and the environment in our region,” Gitga’at First Nation chief councillor Bruce Reece stated in the release.

The modular station building is located on a concrete float and provides operations office space in close proximity to the response vessels, the release said. The residence is nearby within the community of Hartley Bay and has solar cells on its roof to help offset approximately 30 per cent of the building’s total electrical demand.

The Canadian Coast Guard also held a dedication into service ceremony for the CCGS Cadboro Bay, a high-endurance self-righting lifeboat that has been in operation in British Columbia since 2019.
