The future of a proposed $20 million marina in Victoria Harbour on Canada's Vancouver Island now rests with local officials after the federal government gave its final blessing to the controversial project.

The project received a navigable waters permit fromTransport Canada. Two other federal agencies - Fisheries and Oceans Canada and Environment Canada - have also given their OK, the Vancouver Sun reports.

Speaking for the provincial government, Forests and Range minister Pat Bell said it's now up to the city of Victoria to rezone the property slated for the megayacht marina if it doesn't want the development to go ahead.

Bell said the province would not oppose the city if it moved to change the zoning of the provincially-owned water lot, the planned site of a 52-slip marina for luxury yachts.
