As of February 1, 2015, the Federal Bridge Corporation Limited (FBCL) has amalgamated
with one of its subsidiaries,
the Saint Mary's River Bridge Company (SMRBC), and subsequently, with another Crown
corporation, the Blue Water Bridge Authority (BWBA).
These changes aim to:
Enhance the efficiency of international bridge operations;
Build on other initiatives such as modernizing Canada Border Services Agency
located at the international bridges in Sault Ste. Marie, Cornwall, Thousand Islands
(Lansdowne) and Point Edward; and,
Provide portfolio approach to international bridge operations and oversight enabling
it to apply consistent policies and procedures
across all its bridges, streamline reporting, and ensure consistency in service
levels and security protocols.
The amalgamation with FBCL's remaining subsidiary, The Seaway International Bridge
Corporation (SIBC) is expected to occur at a later date.
