Good neighbouring

By Port of Montreal

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. 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.

The port’s involvement with the Bota Bota Montreal ice canoe challenge shows that the Port of Montreal has the citizen’s interest at heart and that the organization desires to maintain a harmonious relationship with its neighbours
