Thunder Bay is one of Canada's busiest grain ports, shipping over 6 million tonnes yearly, on average, over the past 10 years. Eight terminals operate on the waterfront, loading hundreds of lakers and salties each shipping season. These 3 maps show both operating and non-operating elevators on the waterfront in 2017.
South End Elevators
Grain still leaves this part of the harbour from 2 operating elevators. G3 and the jointly owned Superior Terminal (Cargill and Parrish & Heimbecker) operate on the Mission tributary of the Kam. Three decommissioned elevators still stand along the Kam River; the other thirteen terminals have all been demolished.
The intercity area of the waterfront has three operating elevators, two owned by Viterra and the other by Canada Malting. Unlike the south end elevators, the decommissioned elevators on this part of the waterfront still stand.
North End Elevators
Richardson International operates two elevators in the Current River section of the harbour. Two decommissioned elevators stand next to these—Saskatchewan Wheat Pool 4A and 4B—as does Thunder Bay's first CPR terminal a little farther down the waterfront.
