Originally built in 1968 to address the shipping needs of what was then the Noranda Smelter (Glencore), the Port of Belledune has grown and evolved from the single terminal facility it was then to a four terminal port.  It still provides the gateway through which concentrates move across the globe from its original terminal, but having expanded three times, first in 1995, again in 1998 and again in 2010, the Port of Belledune has assumed a greater role in the economy of the surrounding regions.  It has, in striving to fulfil its mission, become one of the cornerstones of the local economy and provides direct and indirect employment for many local residents.
