The Port of Belledune is a deep sea port strategically located close to the entrance of the St-Lawrence River, the gateway to Central Canada and North America’s vast interior market. The Port’s proximity to Europe and the arctic provides shippers easy access to global markets. The port is also strategically positioned to provide excellent service for cargo that will be transited with Northern Provinces and Territories and eventually for traffic destined to the Arctic North West Passage which could propel Belledune as the Global Hub for North Eastern America.
