Port Tour

Please note that the port tour is full but we are managing a wait list.  You can contact Crystal Klippenstein if you’ve already registered and want to add  yourself to the wait list or remove yourself from the tour.

The port tour is an optional add-on for registered delegates and their partners. This is the evolved offering of the partner’s daytime tour from past CCC conventions and is an opportunity to take advantage of being in our host city and making agricultural connections. This tour overlaps with planned meetings for the boards of Canola Council and Soy Canada. If you anticipate being a part of those meetings, you will be unable to attend this tour.

Tuesday, March 5, 12:00 – 3:00 pm

This half-day tour of the Port of Montreal includes:

  • A introduction from the Montreal Port Authority which includes a scale model of the entire port and grab-and-g0 lunch to eat on the bus.
  • A bus tour of the 20 km long-port facilities, including a brief stop at the CanEst plant and at one of the four international container terminals.
  • A bus tour of Viterra’s facilities, including a look at both the laker and ocean vessel aspects of the facilities, as well as rail and truck operations.

Cost: $0 – advance registration is required

If minimum attendance numbers aren’t met, activity details may change or the tour may be cancelled .
