The Port gets involved
The Port of Montreal gave rise to the founding of our city and has maintained a dynamic presence ever since. The City of Montreal would not be what it is today without the port activity that has characterized it from its earliest history. Beyond its economic role, the Port of Montreal also defines itself as a social partner involved in its community.
The Port gives special importance to its immediate neighbours, the residents of areas adjacent to Port territory on the Island of Montreal and at Contrecoeur. Its community investment policy targets them specifically.
Here are the organizations that the Port of Montreal has financially supported since June:
- June 3, 2017: Hochelaga-Maisonneuve Family Festival (Hochelaga-Maisonneuve round table)
