Julie Gascon, President and CEO of the MPA, said: “The success of Green Marine’s 2023 certification would not have been possible without the unwavering commitment and hard work of our teams rallying to maintain and surpass our high standards of environmental excellence every year.”

In February, the Port of Montreal and Contrecoeur Terminal Constructors General Partnership (CTCGP), formed by firms Pomerleau and Aecon, signed an agreement for the Contrecœur expansion project.
