Shipping by Sea

Port of Johnstown The Port of Johnstown is strategically located on the St. Lawrence Seaway system, 100 kilometres south of Ottawa, 330 kilometres east of Toronto and 208 kilometres west of Montreal. It is also located at the junction of two major Ontario highways, Highways 401 and 416 (Veterans' Memorial Highway) and on the Toronto-Montreal railway corridor, giving the port several ways to access eastern and western Canadian markets. The nearby international bridge allows for convenient access to New York State. The Port is well-positioned to take advantage of economic development opportunities for the region.

The Port of Montreal has been providing 365-day service since 1964 with the help of icebreakers from the Canadian Coast Guard. Today, advances in technology provide first-rate navigation along its waterway. The St. Lawrence River is one of the largest inland waterways in the world. Its channel, which is 11.3 metres (37 feet) below the lowest water line (chart datum), is open year-round to all types of ships, including containerships that can carry as many as 6,000 TEU (twenty-foot equivalent unit) containers.
