About the Baie-Comeau industrial port zone

The Baie-Comeau IP Zone 

At the heart of a vast territory designated by UNESCO as a World Biosphere Reserve, the Baie-Comeau industrial port zone provides the opportunity to develop and transform Quebec’s mining, forestry, and energy resources in a sustainable and responsible manner.  

With our dedicated resources for innovation and social and environmental responsibility, Baie-Comeau sets itself apart thanks to its proactive approach, doing its utmost to make your project a reality.

Besides maximizing the potential for synergies between companies, the IP zone also facilitates logistics activities via its access to road and rail networks, as well as year-round port facilities. Companies can therefore benefit from functional facilities to increase their efficiency.

Baie-Comeau’s IP Zone capitalizes on expertise and research, particularly in green energy, to set the standard for innovation. Supporting industrial and commercial projects alongside MU Conseils, a RMBMU business entity, also helps build a solid foundation for taking action.

Our IP zone is one of the few in Quebec offering considerable development potential for large-scale industrial sites, with over 500 hectares available.  

Perimeter of the Baie-Comeau IP Zone

The IP zone was established based on the region’s strategic infrastructures and amenities. With a surface area covering nearly 27 km², including the maritime area, it encompasses a significant part of the City of Baie-Comeau and is able to meet companies’ and industries’ most specific needs.
