2019 First Ship Contest

When will the first ship make its way into Hamilton Harbour in 2019?

The First Ship Contest is back! As the largest port in Ontario, the Port of Hamilton plays an essential role by supporting industries that touch our lives every day.

In 2018, 647 vessels were welcomed into Hamilton Harbour. These ships come and go from the Port of Hamilton carrying everything from iron ore for steel, to industrial machinery, aggregates for roadbuilding, gasoline for your car, to Ontario-grown grain.

It won’t be long until the first ships of the 2019 season make their way through the St. Lawrence from overseas or Quebec ports, or through the Welland Canal from the upper Great Lakes.

When will the first one pass through the shipping canal into Hamilton Harbour? Take your best guess, and you could win a prize pack from the Hamilton Store!
