Contrecoeur Port Terminal

Project Name: Contrecoeur Port Terminal


Partner: Montreal Port Authority

Location: Montreal, Quebec

Sector: Trade and Transportation

Participation: up to $300 million*

Description: The container market at the Port of Montreal has been growing for more than 50 years. It is the largest port in Eastern Canada, handling more than 1.6 million containers in 2018.

The proposed new Contrecoeur Port Terminal will increase container handling capacity and meet forecast demand from international shippers.

The new terminal will help exporters get products to market more quickly, support economic growth and Canada’s international trade. The terminal will modernize the infrastructure that supports the flow of goods from container ships and reduce current capacity issues.

The new terminal also supports the Montreal Port Authority’s mission of contributing to the economic development of Greater Montreal and supporting Canada’s industrial heartland in Quebec and Ontario.

The Montreal port is the shortest direct route from Europe and the Mediterranean to North America. By using Montreal’s ports, businesses have access to 40 million consumers within one trucking day and 70 million consumers within two rail days.
