Port of Sept-Îles acknowledges judgement

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.
