When it comes to matters of the community, the Société du Port de Valleyfield’s mission is two-fold.
On the one hand, the SPV must adopt an entrepreneurial approach that ensures positive business development as well as the sustainability of operations, both for itself and for the businesses established within its facilities.
On the other hand, the SPV must also consider its contribution to society as an economic driver responsible for generating employment and property taxes. Furthermore, following the deployment of Quebec’s Maritime Strategy in June 2015, it is essential that the SPV play a role in increasing awareness as well as informing and educating the public on future issues and challenges.
In sum, the SPV must strive to sustain its port activities and attract investors and business partners while also playing a proactive social role among Salaberry-de-Valleyfield’s business community and citizens.
