Contrecoeur Terminal Expansion Plans on the Table

The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency is currently conducting a federal environmental assessment of the proposed Contrecoeur Port Terminal Expansion Project.

The Montreal Port Authority proposes the construction of the container port terminal with a maximum annual capacity of 1.15 million containers on its property located in Contrecoeur, approximately 40 kilometers downstream from Montreal.

The project includes the construction of a 675 meter dock for two berths to accommodate vessels between 39,000 and 75,400 dead-weight tonnage (DWT).

According to the official statement, the agency invites the public and Indigenous groups to comment on the potential environmental effects of the project and the proposed measures to prevent or mitigate those effects as described in the proponent’s summary of the Environmental Impact Statement.

Written comments on this capital development project should be submitted no later than March 9, 2018, the agency said.
