Outer Harbour Marina Achieves Diamond Designation in Boating Ontario Clean Marine Eco-Rating Program

This year, the Outer Harbour Marina (OHM) was awarded a Diamond rating by the Boating Ontario Clean Marine program, one of the highest rankings attainable for marinas that follow environmental best practices.

The OHM has a reputation for excellence in environmental stewardship, with the marina having earned a Gold rating in the Clean Marine program for more than a decade, and being recognized with the 2019 Robert Eaton Environmental Award for its innovative Seabin Pilot Project – the first commercial installation of its kind in Canada.

Legacy commitments to sustainability and recent environmental improvements have led to the OHM’s upgraded Clean Marine rating in 2022, including:   
  • Continuing to power all of OHM’s operations with 100 per cent renewable wind and solar energy through PortsToronto’s partnership with Bullfrog Power. Through this partnership, OHM’s Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions have been zero for more than a decade.   
  • As part of the PortsToronto Trash Trapping Program, the OHM is home to four Seabins, – devices that capture floating plastics and debris – and is an important site in the University of Toronto Trash Team’s Fighting Floatables research, which aims to inform upstream solutions to prevent debris from entering the water.
  • In 2021, 600 native plants, including 15 coniferous trees, 85 deciduous trees and 500 shrubs, were planted at the Outer Harbour Marina as part of a broader effort to ensure Toronto’s waterfront assets provide a wildlife refuge and recreational opportunities for generations to come.
  • PortsToronto reports on OHM’s environmental successes and areas of improvement in its annual Sustainability Report, and communicates key sustainability initiatives to the marina community through the marina’s social media accounts.
