Who are our neighbours?
In the interest of getting to know you better, we closely studied the residential areas adjacent to the Port of Montreal’s territory.
The cities involved are Montreal, Montreal East and Contrecoeur, and the boroughs are Ville-Marie, Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve and Pointe-aux-Trembles-Rivière-des-Prairies.
Within these administrative zones, our immediate neighbours are the residents and businesses located no more than 300 metres from port territory. So that’s who… Recognize yourself?
Among our immediate neighbours, we also include the groups and local organizations working to meet the needs of your community.

Vélopousse tourist shuttles
The Port of Montreal has often shown how serious it is about forging closer ties with the communities near its territory. We would now like to share our latest move in this direction. This year, we became a partner of Vélopousse by providing financial support to this great initiative that attracts tourists to the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve neighbourhood.
What attracted us was the originality of their concept: a guided tour of the neighbourhood in a pedicab (vélopousse), an electronically-assisted tricycle with a hooded cab for passengers, much like those found in countries such as China.
The Port of Montreal will provide information on Vélopousse activities from their booth where customers board at Olympic Park, which will increase the value of the offering to customers. Furthermore, the port will give the cycling tour guides training about the Port of Montreal, its facilities and its role in the economy as well as for the City of Montreal. They will be able to include this information in the guided tour.
Vélopousse began operating in Hochelaga-Maisonneuve in the summer of 2012. Nine pedicabs are driven by local youth, plying the circuit of tourist attractions over the summer season from June to September. This new activity showcases the rich history of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, with its historic buildings, architectural gems, monuments and community resources, while bringing potential customers to local businesses.
We wish the proud organizers and everyone working at Vélopousse a great 2014 season! Information
