TRADING WITH THE WORLD

Funding to optimize the logistics chain

Port facilities in Montreal and Contrecœur

Are you interested in developing business projects that will contribute to supply chain efficiency and/or the growth in volume of goods imported or exported from the Port of Montreal?

The Montreal Port Authority (MPA) and the Fonds de solidarité FTQ are teaming up to make $100 million available to companies with an import/export development project in Greater Montreal and Contrecœur connected with the Port’s logistics chain.

With an ecosystem featuring 6,300 businesses, this logistics chain is recognized as one of the most efficient in the world. It is sought after for its operational and environmental performance and for how it sharpens the competitive edge of its business partners. For more information, visit CargoM, the Logistics and Transportation Metropolitan Cluster of Montreal, at www.cargo-montreal.ca

The Port of Montreal is an international port that contributes to regional and national economic development in collaboration with its many supply chain partners. Check out our online directory for a detailed list of Port of Montreal partner companies.

 

In-depth industry knowledge

As part of its mission to contribute to Québec’s economic development, the Fonds de solidarité FTQ has been investing in maritime and other forms of transportation for many years, cultivating in-depth industry knowledge through close cooperation with the MPA, major port terminal operators, and air, land and sea carriers. In addition, through its subsidiary, the Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ invests in building construction projects in every sector, including industrial buildings.

 

Customized financing

The amount will be made available to companies through the Fonds de solidarité FTQ – Port of Montreal logistics financing partnership in the form of equity financing or an unsecured loan designed to support long-term growth.

Companies that want to submit a project to benefit from this financing are invited to contact the Fonds de solidarité FTQ or the MPA. The Fonds and the MPA will then assess the application files on the basis of its investment criteria. The Fonds shall be solely responsible for agreements with developers.
