Who are the Neighbours of the Port?

Port facilities border several neighbourhoods in the City of Montreal, Montreal East and Contrecœur on the South Shore. We take dialogue with our neighbours to heart. The Neighbours of the Port are informed whenever there are project works in their sector and they receive special invitations to our Port in the City events in addition to news that may concern them. We also partner on a number of projects with organizations that foster education in marine industry careers, economic development and environmental protection.

You are one of our Neighbours if you are a resident or a business located within 300 metres of Port territory.

 

 

Territory

Port territory extends 26 km along the Island of Montreal, from Bickerdike Pier near the Bonaventure Expressway and Cité du Havre to the Rivière-des-Prairies – Pointe-aux-Trembles Borough, adjacent to the Ville-Marie and Mercier – Hochelaga-Maisonneuve boroughs and the City of Montreal East. It also has 4 km of shoreline in Contrecoeur.

City-Port working group

Launched in 2019, this working group aims to improve the interface between Port territory and the City through collaborations with various stakeholders and by setting up targeted projects. The Mercier-East sector was selected as a priority zone for the working group. Participating organizations include the Mercier-East environment collective, the Montreal Regional Environment Council and the Major Parks Department

Improving the City-Port interface encompasses several components:

  • The visual aspect of Port facilities and the aesthetic appeal of the sites
  • Greening
  • Enhancement and promotion of openings onto the river
  • Mitigating any disturbances to neighbours caused by port activities
