Deployment of Navigational Buoys to Take Place Overnight May 19

Toronto (May 19, 2022) – Please be advised that, in preparation for the boating season, crews will be deploying navigational buoys around Toronto’s Harbour overnight  from 10:30 p.m. Thursday, May 19 until approximately 5:00 a.m. on Friday, May 20. Weather dependent.
After removal over the winter for maintenance and repairs, the buoys are placed in the Harbour each spring by PortsToronto to help ensure the safe navigation of boats and ships. The buoys being deployed are located to the east of Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport. Deployment of the buoys to the east of the airport will be scheduled at a later date.
While the buoy deployment is taking place, passersby can expect to see a tugboat, barge and crane, needed to lift the six-tonne buoys, in the Harbour. Minimal noise is expected.
