Did you look at the two links you initially posted? They're a good start.

The port authorities list has links to individual port websites (most of the larger ports will have one), but there is much more to the port system when you include recreational ports, municipally owned ports, and private industrial docking facilities in a number of places.

I find the humor in my post since I really wish for someone that has a strong pull or influence on these ports to show their passion and answer the questions. I understand your reflection with regards to myself so no big deal! It does not matter if you wish to contribute or not other than to stat the above because that says as much about you as it does about me right!
I would like to learn from someone who lives in the area of the port. As Vid has already pointed some information that not many know about.

This is a forum, it it the opportunity for those with information to share information so as to learn about a certain location.

I am not talking about google info or Molson Export n=37 nothing information. I am talking about personal information about the area as well as the information that only comes from those who live in the area.

Yes, Victoria has a significant Port Authority. They operate cruise ship terminals, general cargo terminals (mostly for export of wood products) as well as a handling booking for pleasure boats in their marinas. In fact the larger cruise ships on the Alaska run can't fit in Vancouver so they home-port in Seattle and call on Victoria.

The interesting marine resource that is not owned by the Port Authority is the dry dock. It is actually owned by the Canadian Navy, I believe it is one of the largest dry docks on the west coast and Seaspan as well as others lease that space from time to time either for Ship construction/assembly or maintenance. Recently they have one the NCL cruise ships in there for a mid-life retrofit.

Prince Rupert would probably be the second largest port in BC behind Vancouver.

Nanaimo also has its own authority, with cargo terminals and a very nice cruise ship terminal that can handle large vessels.

Actually if you care to look at this thread (link below) you'll see I have posted in the past some of my very own pics of ships docked in QC:

How's that for giving you (first hand) information? Pics by none other than yours truly!

Moosonee:
It doesn't have big ships or anything like that but there are tugboats that pull barges with goods to First Nations along James Bay. There is railroad access to Moosonee but no road access.

There are proposals to have a significant port facility but nothing has happened as of yet. Much of the interest is due to increased mining activity in the far North.

Moosonee and Moose Factory (located on an island in the river) are the oldest non-Indigenous settlements in Ontario. About 85% of the population is Cree.

Toronto has the country’s largest passenger port, but I’m pretty sure we have another thread to discuss that.

I use Vancouver’s port pretty frequently and it’s quaint, but pretty small and crowded. Despite being relatively new, it’s in need for expansion.

I think he is referencing the airports in a back handed way.

If not and he is referencing ferries, well, then you would also have to include BC ferry port facilities.

Some screengrabs with information about ours. It's of course central to the city's identity. "It's a working port" is a common refrain about everything here, from hookers to harbour fencing.

Toronto technically has a lake port, albeit much, much smaller than in it's heyday. It contains a bulk cargo port and a passenger cruise ship terminal: https://www.portstoronto.com/port-of-toronto.aspxx

https://goo.gl/maps/iFhCcrBHaaM2

According to the wiki it's the 36th largest port in Canada receiving 1.7 million tonnes of cargo. I'd imagine the bulk of that is raw sugar from Brazil and Guatemala headed to the Redpath sugar refinery:

Hamilton has a much more significant port tied to the steel industry.
