The Blue Water Bridge Authority (BWBA) owns and operates the Canadian half of the Blue Water Bridge, located between Sarnia, Ontario, and Port Huron, Michigan. The American half is owned and operated by the Michigan Department of Transportation. The BWBA was created in 1964 by the Blue Water Bridge Authority Act, and was expected to become a bi-national authority. However, the U.S. has never exercised its option to appoint members, which would have created the bi-national authority. Because all members of the board of directors are appointed by the Governor in Council, the Blue Water Bridge Authority was deemed as a federal Crown corporation on April 26, 2002. The BWBA has the authority to set and charge tolls for the use of the bridge structures.
The BWBA commenced operations as a federal Crown corporation on April 26, 2002. It is required to report to Parliament annually. The financial year of the BWBA is September 1 to August 31.
Canada Lands Company Limited (Canada Lands) is the parent company of four wholly owned subsidiaries: Canada Lands Company CLC Limited, which handles the real estate operations; Parc Downsview Park Inc., which is responsible for the development and management of an urban recreational greenspace on the former CFB Toronto lands; 3148131 Canada Limited which is inactive; and the Old Port of Montreal Corporation Inc., which reports as a parent Crown corporation and is responsible for redeveloping the Old Port of Montreal.
The property holdings of the Corporation fall into three categories, namely, rental properties, properties under development and land held for development or sale. Its principal managed properties are Canada’s National Tower (“CN Tower”) and Downsview Park, both in Toronto.
Since Canada Lands Company Limited’s 2001–02 Annual Report had not been tabled in Parliament as of the closing date for its inclusion in the database for the President of the Treasury Board’s annual report, the Corporation’s activities and performance results for 2001–02 have not been reflected in this report.
