Crucial step for Trois-Rivières

Crucial step for Trois-Rivières

(Posted on 12/10/20)

The Port of Trois-Rivières has received confirmation of significant financial assistance of $33.4 million from Transport Canada for the construction of Terminal 21.

Used for the transhipment of dry bulk, liquid bulk and general cargo, this new terminal includes the construction of docks, retaining structures, vehicle and rail access roads and storage space. It will require a total investment of close to $130 million.

The Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Foreign Affairs and MP of Saint-Maurice—Champlain, made the announcement online.

“This financial support is of great importance for the future of the Port of Trois-Rivières. Terminal 21 is a crucial step in our On Course for 2030 development plan.

The Port of Trois-Rivières relies on a dynamic team, versatile and ambitious stevedores, as well as

committed partners. This is our recipe for success and we intend to take this major step in

our development in collaboration with all these players”, said Danielle St-Amand, Chair of

the Port of Trois-Rivières Board of Directors.

A flagship project of the On Course for 2030 development plan, this new terminal will

increase by nearly 50% the Port's capacity, which is currently operating at full regime, as

more and more companies seek to use its services to reach international markets.

716 metres of wharf facades will be added to the west of the current infrastructures,

covering a surface area of nearly 100,000 m

“Today's announcement comes in a context where we need to create the conditions for

economic recovery. Terminal 21 will increase Port traffic by 1.5 million metric tons with

an estimated value of $2.7 billion. But a wharf, a terminal, is more than just an

infrastructure. It represents above all several generations of employed men and women

who will succeed one another. This is the largest expansion phase that the Port will

experience in nearly one hundred years and is the foundation for its future development,”

explained Mr. Gaétan Boivin, President and CEO of the Port of Trois-Rivières.

Providing more than just a port infrastructure, Terminal 21 is first and foremost a means

of increasing the competitiveness of our industries on world markets, particularly those in

our region, since the Port of Trois-Rivières is one of the most closely connected to its

regional economy.

Terminal 21 will also contribute to attracting new businesses and new sectors of activity

wishing to take advantage of this increased capacity at the Port of Trois-Rivières. The

benefits of Terminal 21 will thus be compounded by the jobs created within these

As part of the 17 Canadian Port Authorities and active since 1882, the Port of Trois-Rivières offers a wide range of

facilities and services to the maritime industry throughout the year. The Port is an important player in regional, national

and international economic development for major industrial sectors such as the aluminium industry, forestry and agrifood.
