Strategic advantages

A region with easy access, only 30 minutes from downtown Montréal, the territory of Beauharnois-Salaberry is intersected by Montréal’s main bypass road, that is, Highway 30. Its proximity to the Ontario and US markets gives it a strategic advantage and makes it a choice location for any business that wants to transact with North-American and international markets.

  • Québec’s continental doorway for the transport/transfer of goods.
  • Access to a large pool of skilled labour and to a dynamic population: 524,800 skilled workers within reach.
  • Supply in hydroelectricity at reasonable prices with the presence of the 720 kV transmission lines of the main Hydro-Québec distribution network and a major hydro power plant that ensures the stability of supply.
  • Supply in natural gas in the industrial parks and urban areas.
  • School and higher education system focused on university studies, but also on technical trades and crafts.
