    The Quebec Port Authority is the Canada Port Authority (CPA) established
to manage the Port of Quebec, under the Canada Marine Act. As a CPA, the
Quebec Port Authority benefits from greater management flexibility, including
increased freedom to develop contracts and borrow money from commercial
lenders.
    Open year-round, the Port of Quebec offers a water depth of 15.5 metres
and access to two transcontinental railway systems. The port's location
positions it as a continental gateway for cargo movements between the major
cities of eastern North America and the rest of the world.
