Port of Sept-Îles acknowledges judgement
(Posted on 12/05/20)
The Port of Sept-Îles has acknowledged the judgment issued by the
Superior Court of Québec in the district of Mingan in its legal case with Pomerleau Inc. regarding
construction of the multi-user wharf. The court awarded a total of $13,313,671 in damages to
Pomerleau in the ruling.
With its diverse, state-of-the-art facilities, the Port of Sept-Îles is North America’s largest ore-handling
port, with a projected volume of close to 35 million tonnes in 2020.
As indicated by the Court, Pomerleau initially brought proceedings against the Port of Sept-Îles on July
20, 2015, for a total of $68.3 million in damages. That figure was amended by Pomerleau on multiple
occasions, down to a final $30.5 million at the end of the trial—significantly higher than the amount
granted in the judgment.
The Port of Sept-Îles plans to go over the judgment with legal counsel before commenting or deciding
on the next step.
The port facilities at Sept-Îles play a vital and strategic role in the economy of Eastern Canada. Annual economic impacts are estimated at
nearly $1 billion and almost 4,000 direct and indirect jobs.
