The Port of Trois-Rivières has officially inaugurated its news cruise terminal with the help of the Canadian city’s Mayor Yves Lévesque and the Minister of Tourism and the Mauricie Region Julie Boulet.
Built as part of the Innovation et Développement économique Trois-Rivières initiative, the terminal will serve international cruise ships and their guests and crew. The city has already welcomed more than 9,500 passengers and 4,600 crew members over the past five years.
“This new port terminal will allow Trois-Rivières to shine, while positioning itself advantageously to attract and serve international cruise lines,” said Lévesque.
Located at the city’s Harbourfront Park, the new terminal was built at a cost of CAD$630,000, with CAD$382,000 of funding from the City of Trois-Rivières, CAD$168,000 from the Ministère du Esposa Porno Tourisme du Québec and CAD$80,000 from the Port of Trois-Rivières.
“Through the tourism plan in our Maritime Strategy, we are aiming to make the St. Lawrence River a world-renowned tourism destination that will be the pride of Quebecers, enjoy a high profile among foreign visitors, and reap the considerable economic benefits of sustainable development,” said Boulet. “This achievement will greatly contribute to providing a Abuela Porno warm welcome to cruise clientele as they visit the city and region.”
According to Gaétan Boivin, president and CEO of the Port of Trois-Rivières, the new terminal is part of the port’s goal to facilitate access to the river and “enhance the city-port interface”. He said: “In recent years, the Port of Trois-Rivières has notably created Hector-Louis-Langevin Park on the banks of the river and a pedestrian walkway to make it easier to access to the park. All of these improvements further enhance our reputation for hospitality and enable us to surpass our clients’ expectations.”
