Quebec's new maritime vision

Quebec's new maritime vision

(Posted on 22/06/21)

The Port of Trois-Rivières has welcomed the Minister for Transport, Chantal Rouleau, the Minister of Labour, Employment and Social Solidarity and Minister responsible for the Mauricie region, Jean Boulet, as well as several partners in the maritime industry, for the official announcement of Quebec's new maritime vision: Avantage Saint-Laurent.

“We are extremely honoured that this important announcement was held at the Port of Trois-Rivières. The Port is a community that includes not only its users, but also many partners outside its borders. It is precisely because of this strong community that the Port of Trois-Rivières is often recognized as a model, notably for its innovative and sustainable initiatives, its relationship based on transparency and collaboration with the City and its citizens, and its commitment to the regional environment,” said Gaétan Boivin, President and CEO of the Port of Trois-Rivières, in his introduction to the announcement.

After having successfully completed On Course for 2020, the Port of Trois-Rivières is now embarking on On Course for 2030. The maritime vision “Avantage Saint-Laurent” provides important additional support to the realization of this development plan. From the major Terminal 21 project, to the development of a specialized road corridor for the transportation of non-standard equipment, to the redevelopment and optimization of rail and roadways, to the achievement of carbon neutrality, to the integration of artificial intelligence, to the smart port project, the Port of Trois-Rivières is in step with the Government of Quebec, which is relying on the maritime sector to become a powerful vector for economic, social, and environmental development.

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 aluminum industry, forestry and agri-food.
