A Word from Sylvie Vachon to the Neighbours of the Port

Good neighbouring


Port territory covers 26 km on the island of Montreal. Obviously, it borders several neighbourhoods.

More specifically, the port extends from Bickerdike Pier, near the Bonaventure Expressway and Cité du Havre, to Rivière-des-Prairies – Pointe-aux-Trembles. In between are the boroughs of Ville-Marie and Mercier – Hochelaga-Maisonneuve and the city of Montreal East.

The port, therefore, has a large number of immediate neighbours in the residents and businesses located along or within a few streets of its facilities. Are you one of these neighbours? If yes, then this new section is for you!

Many organizations in your neighbourhood are working to improve the quality of life there, ensure its economic development and protect its environment. These organizations are also neighbours of the port, and we share many of the same issues.

Last fall, the Port of Montreal gave some serious thought to how it could get closer to communities located near its facilities. The result is clear: we reaffirmed the Port’s willingness to maintain good relations with its neighbours and to take concrete measures to get closer. In other words, it is now a priority for the Port of Montreal to strengthen and maintain dialogue with you, dear neighbours.

This new section of Logbook is a direct demonstration of our commitment.

I invite you to join our Neighbour of the Port community now by clicking on events.port-montreal.com/voisins to automatically receive future editions of Logbook along with information on port activities that specifically affect your sector.

Happy reading!
