    Welcome to the Port of Sept-Iles, a deep water port located on the north shore of the Gulf of St.Lawrence, 650 kilometres east of Quebec City. The port consists of a large natural basin with a water depth of more than 80 meters, open to year-round navigation. It is the largest iron-ore port in Canada and serves the mining industry of Quebec and Labrador.

    The average port traffic is about 21,0 to 24,0 millions tons annually. The Iron ore industry provides approximately 90% of the total tonnage handled in the port, the remaining tonnage comes from the aluminium industry. Normally, the port ranks second in Canada for its overall yearly tonnage, just after the port of Vancouver.
