A brief history
of the Port
Since the end of the last ice age, the bay of Sept-Îles has been home to nomadic groups, hardy fisherfolk and bold entrepreneurs. It has seen cottages crop up along its shores that grew into villages, then towns, to become a full-fledged city serving an entire region of Quebec. As new facilities were built to accommodate burgeoning industries, a small village harbour slowly grew to become one of the largest seaports in North America. Enjoy this brief look back at the Port of Sept-Îles.
