Financial Results & Historical Data

March 31, 2020 financial statements

SIBC operates and manages the international toll bridge system linking Cornwall, Ontario, Akwesasne and Massena, New York. SIBC is a wholly-owned subsidiary Canadian Crown Corporation to The Federal Bridge Corporation Limited (FBCL). It operates as a joint operation between FBCL (Canadian partner) and the Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation (American partner – SLSDC). SIBC collects the tolls and pays for the daily operations and maintenance of both the North and South Channel Bridges and international roadways, including the purchases of necessary vehicles and equipment. The bridges and buildings themselves are directly owned by either the Canadian and American partners, who are responsible for all capital and major repairs. Consequently SIBC returns all money to the owners annually after paying for annual operations. These funds are then re-invested back into roads, bridges and buildings.

During the March 31, 2020 fiscal year, SIBC had an annual surplus of $244,162 which will be used to fund future costs associated with the roads, bridges and buildings. In the course of the fiscal year, the owners have invested $116,023 back into roads and bridges. In addition, a significant portion of the owner’s balance of $4.8M will be used primarily for updating of the South Channel Bridge travelers with the American partner, SLSDC, contributing $2.64M and the Canadian partner, FBCL, contributing $1.24M.

Furthermore, the owners have invested into significant projects that are not covered by owner’s balance but rather covered by additional owner funds. During the March 31, 2020 fiscal year, FBCL has incurred $5.89M to the final phase of the demolition of the in-water piers of the former high-level bridge in Cornwall.

Large construction contracts on the bridges such as the pier removal and the traveler installation achieve a minimum of 15% First Nations content.

SIBC is very actively engaged in managing the budget and actual results, SIBC is also required by historical government arrangements to provide individual members of the Mohawk community with free passage.  The Seaway has experienced significant decline in cross-border travels linked to the devaluing of the Canadian dollar and regional economic challenges.  Both car volumes and truck volumes have decreased significantly since the 1990s and 2000s.  Car volumes reached their peak in 1991 and 1992 for paid traffic due to the exchange rate resulting in cross border shopping.  The loss on truck volumes started in 2004 as a result of the closure of multiple industrial plant customers such as Domtar, GM, Alcoa and others.
