Three Rivers Industrial Port Zone moving forward

After more than two years of work, partners of the Three Rivers Industrial Port Zone (IP Zone) are ready to take action.

As a result of the implementation of the Quebec government’s maritime strategy, the City of Three Rivers, Innovation and Economic Development Three Rivers and the Port of Three Rivers have committed to creating an IP Zone in Three Rivers. Agreements were concluded in 2016. A local committee of partner representatives was created to oversee the project. These partners are proud to announce the commencement of prospecting activities to attract businesses to the Three Rivers IP Zone.

The local committee has established the delimitation of the IP Zone, a development plan, an action plan, a prospecting strategy and a financing plan. Various studies have been conducted to identify opportunities as well as niche markets. To support the prospecting activities to be deployed in the coming months, a brochure with a special insert and a promotional video were produced. A new website has also been launched: www.zoneiptroisrivieres.com/en/.

More detailed results of these projects will be presented to companies and various partners during a joint information day with the Bécancour IP Zone, which will be held Monday, April 30 at the Auberge Godefroy. This event will also be an opportunity to present the various financial programs which companies will have access to through the IP Zone.

“The future is bright thanks to the collaborative strength of our partners who all share the same goal,” said Gaétan Boivin, President and CEO, Three Rivers Port Authority (TRPA). “The IP Zone is an important lever for development for a port city like Three Rivers, and the TRPA has made it part of its On Course for 2030 strategic plan, which will be unveiled soon.”
