Despite being a federal entity, Canadian Port Authorities operate at an arm’s length from the federal government and do not meet the same governance reporting standards as found in the private industry for financial, social and environmental performance. As a result, though some CPAs exceed these reporting standards, the inconsistency across the sectors suggests the need for a more unified reporting system. Accordingly, this paper proposes a port-specific framework to fill performance gaps in current sustainability initiatives.
