Friends of Grain Elevators

Current Map

Current Harbour Front Map

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


(Under construction) Grain still leaves this part of the harbour from 3 operating elevators. G3 and Cargill/Parrish & Heimbecker operate their terminals on the Mission tributary of the Kam, while Maurice Mailhot's Western Grain By-products Storage ships from a little further upstream.

Intercity Elevators


(under construction) The intercity area of the waterfront has three operating elevators, two operated by Viterra and the other by Canada Malting. Unlike the south end elevators, most of which have been demolished over the years, the decommissioned elevators on this part of the waterfront still stand.

North End Elevators


(under construction) Two elevators are operated in the Current River section of the harbour. Two other decommissioned elevators still stand, the former Saskatchewan Wheat Pool 4A and 4B.
