Keefer Terminal, Port of Thunder Bay

Keefer Terminal was conceptualized in 1957 by the Canadian Lakehead Port Association, a cooperative consisting of the provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, and the cities of Port Arthur and Fort William. The terminal stands out as a major feature of the Thunder Bay Port, and is an integral part of the regions shipping. It was built to augment existing bulk cargo handling capabilities at the Lakehead with modern facilities for lake vessels carrying package freight for Western Canada, and berthage for ocean going vessels for handling import and export trade. Opening ceremonies for Keefer Terminal took place on June 23, 1962, with distinguished guests including the Honourable Walter Dinsdale, Federal Minister of Northern Affairs and National Resources.

With the transition of package freight movement to the TransCanada Highway in the 1980’s, marine activity decreased at Keefer Terminal.

Since 2004, Port of Thunder Bay has revitalized the terminal as a supply chain gateway for heavy, oversized breakbulk and project cargo. Keefer Terminal’s regular cargoes, primarily destined for Western Canada, include steel products (structural steel, rail, and pipe), windmill components, electrical infrastructure, and bulk phosphate fertilizer.

Capital infrastructure investment of $30 million dollars has modernized Keefer’s cargo handling assets, providing value for shippers utilizing the Great Lakes – St. Lawrence Seaway System.

  • 750 meters of marine berths directly linked to rail and highway

Red Sky Métis Independent Nation

Red Sky Métis Independent Nation (RSMIN) are descendants of the original French Voyageurs who settled in the area and the Indigenous women they married. Specifically, they are composed of the descendants of those 84 Métis recognized by the Crown as beneficiaries and annuitants under the Robinson Superior Treaty of 1850. RSMIN are culturally distinct from the First Nations people, holding their own traditions, customs, and practices. The history of RSMIN can be dated back to as early as 1506.

Red Sky Métis Independent Nation share with us their traditional knowledge of preparing birch bark tea. Birch bark tea has anti-inflammatory and medicinal properties to it. Different parts of the birch tree found in the Thunder Bay region have been used for centuries for the preparation of this tea. Enjoy the video below.

Superior Elevator, Port of Thunder Bay

The shorelines of the Lakehead has been populated with elevators since the early 1880’s, with the construction of Port Arthur’s King Elevator beginning in 1883. The grain industry fueled much of the development of the twin cities, with the first elevators being built by the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) at Fort William in 1885.

Construction of grain elevators proceeded so rapidly that Fort William was called “Elevator City” during the early twentieth century.

Today, there are eight operational grain terminals at the Port of Thunder Bay, one of these is Superior Elevator. Grain arrives here by rail where it is offloaded, inspected, cleaned (if needed), and stored until its journey continues east by ship. Watch the Superior Elevator, Port of Thunder Bay video to see this terminal in operation and learn more about its role in transporting grain to market.
