Sylvie Vachon, President and CEO of Port of Montreal, has been awarded the St. Lawrence Award by the St. Lawrence Economic Development Council (SODES). It was presented to her on October 28 at the National Assembly as part of Quebec Marine Day.

The St. Lawrence Award recognizes outstanding actions related to the marine industry by an individual. It is the only award of its kind in Quebec, and has been awarded every year in early autumn since 1992. Nicole Trépanier, President of SODES, took the opportunity to salute Sylvie Vachon’s positive impact on the entire marine industry.

Ms. Vachon stated, “It is really an honour for me to accept this award. It is one of the greatest awards you can get in the marine shipping industry because it is awarded by peers. I am really touched and want to express my most heartfelt thanks to the SODES team. This award will certainly make me want to do more.”
