Last week the Government of Quebec announced $55 million in financial assistance to the Montreal Port Authority (MPA) towards its expansion project in Contrecoeur.  While this support remains conditional on obtaining the required authorizations, this funding will be used to carry out the start-up phase of the development project for the new Contrecoeur container terminalmaking it possible to undertake site preparation among other things.  The Port of Montreal’s expansion in Contrecoeur will lead to the creation of 5,000 jobs during construction and 1,000 jobs during its operation. The project will make it possible to increase container handling capacity while building on the ecosystem of 6,300 transportation and logistics businesses.
