The strength and future of the Hamilton Harbour RAP is our stakeholder approach. Our stakeholders represent a diverse cross-section of interests and provide balance in reaching consensus-based decisions. Since 1986, representatives of the community have worked together to report on the condition of the Harbour and prepare an action plan for its recovery. The stakeholders today implement this recovery through the Bay Area Implementation Team (BAIT).
