The Port of Saguenay is one of the best positioned infrastructures in Canada, particularly geographically, for industrial development. Relying on a deep water access and a huge 3,000 acres lot, the port administrators are currently prospecting for new clients to stimulate the growth of one of the most important economic engines in our region.
“Sometimes you have to talk about it out loud to realize how unique the Port of Saguenay is. There are no similar ones in Quebec and Canada. It is an industrial port which is located near a city with a large population base and which is logistically well placed for the markets of northern Quebec. In addition, here there is an industrial culture and people are open to big industry. These many strengths put together are elements that we must promote in order to interest large companies in investing and establishing themselves here, ”explains Carl Laberge, General Manager of the Saguenay Port Authority, who mentions that Promotion Saguenay as well as Investissement Québec work together on this strategy. If the last few years have served to connect the infrastructure to the rail network and to develop the site, it is now the time to attract new customers.
