We are with you


We are a local organization managed and run by you—the people of Sept-Îles. People who take pride in supporting each other, people who give us purpose. Like you, and with you, we work hard every day to maintain and improve our city’s economic vitality; to give our families healthier, more fulfilling lives; and to create opportunities to come together, enjoy our surroundings and each other, and strengthen our shared sense of identity. We are with you.


Our people, our roots

We are more than an international port: We are a local organization managed and run by locals. As we welcome ships from around the world, our eyes remain firmly fixed on Sept-Îles—place of our people, place of our roots. Eyes filled with awe at the rich natural world that surrounds us, eyes filled with care and compassion for our fine bay, eyes filled with admiration for a community that has always been united by the sea, eyes filled with vision for an ever-better future for our families. Take a look through those eyes at the unique city the Port proudly calls home!

Investing in

our community

Every year we support community organizations that help our people lead healthier, more fulfilling lives. And we’re always finding new and inventive ways to brighten their lives and show just how proud and happy we are to live in Sept-Îles. Since the Port became an independent local organization in 1999, we have invested more than $1.5 million in our community, not to mention volunteering our time and following through on our commitments in other ways.
