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 fulfill its mission, become
one of the cornerstones of the local economy and provides direct and indirect
employment for many local residents.
The flag of the the Port of Belledune is white with the port's emblem.
