Discover the Port of Valleyfield

Inaugurated on June 23, 1966, the Port of Valleyfield occupies 605,000 square meters at the southern end of the Perron Industrial and Harbour Park in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, 70 kilometers southwest of Montreal. It is the only autonomous port under municipal management in Canada and specializes in the transshipment and handling of liquid and solid bulk, general cargo and project cargo.

A logistics hub

Initially built to facilitate raw material supplies for Canadian Electrolytic Zinc (CEZ) and Les Engrais du Saint-Laurent, the Port quickly established itself as a logistic hub for industrial sites in the southwest Montérégie area and, later, for several transregional clients who considered the Port to be an economical high-value alternative for both supply and distribution.

The Port of Valleyfield is a major service point for the Quebec and Canadian Arctic, allowing for transportation of all types of supplies required by Nunavik and Nunavut communities for their settlement and mining needs.

The main products handled in the port area: sulfuric acid, steel, bitumen, bauxite, big bags, containers and general cargo, zinc concentrate and calcine, industrial salt and road salt.
