Beaver Hat Ceremony 2014

Beaver Hat Ceremony
On April 8, 2014, the Toronto Port Authority welcomed the first ocean vessel of 2014 (known as a ‘saltie’) to the Port of Toronto during the Beaver Hat Ceremony, an annual event and Port tradition dating back to 1861 to mark the commencement of the shipping season.

The arrival of M/V Lubie vessel was commemorated during the ceremony in which Ship Captain Jacek Kurpiel was “crowned” by Port of Toronto Harbour Master Angus Armstrong with a nearly 200-year-old silk and beaver top hat & presented with a commemorative briefcase and $100.
