Trois-Rivières, Quebec – The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages and Minister responsible for CED (Canada Economic Development), announced $3,772,998 in financial support for the Trois-Rivières Port Authority. This organization, which ensures the sound management of the public infrastructure under its responsibility, fosters commercial activity and regional and national development. The project proposed by the Authority in collaboration with the Ville de Trois-Rivières will ensure a fluid connection for non-standard traffic between the industrial port area and the Port of Trois-Rivières.
The non-repayable contribution will enable it to reconfigure the intersection where two roads cross, close off the junction of two other roads, bury or raise electric and communication wires, and strengthen the roadway, as well as cover the costs related to the completion of preliminary studies, plans and estimates.
The Government of Canada recognizes and supports businesses and organizations that are a source of pride in their communities. Quebec’s economic recovery relies on these organizations that are well grounded in the regional economy. They are major contributors to growth, as well as key assets in rebuilding a stronger, more resilient, and more just economy for all. (Photo TRPA)
