New Champlain Bridge Corridor Project receives ENVISIONtm Platinum Award

MONTRÉAL, June 5, 2018 /CNW/ - The Government of Canada believes in the importance of protecting our environment while supporting vital infrastructure projects that promote clean growth, preserve healthy ecosystems and build safe sustainable communities.

The New Champlain Bridge Corridor Project has earned a prestigious Envision Platinum Award from the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) for achieving the highest standards of sustainable development and environmental performance on an infrastructure project.

ENVISIONTM ratings are given to infrastructure initiatives like roads, bridges and transportation stations that excel in sustainable development and environmental performance at every stage of the project, from design to construction and implementation. 

This distinction is the first to be awarded in Quebec for infrastructure on the scale of the new Champlain Bridge, and the first in Canada to be awarded for a bridge project.


"I am very pleased that the New Champlain Bridge Corridor Project has earned the ENVISIONTM Platinum award. This confirms it is following high standards of sustainable development to ensure the environment is protected. I want to congratulate the environment teams of Infrastructure Canada and Signature on the Saint Lawrence for their hard work in developing and applying the project's environmental requirements. It is thanks to their efforts that the new Champlain Bridge will not only be a modern effective piece of transportation infrastructure, but also an example of sustainable development and innovation Montréalers and Canadians can be proud of."

The Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities

"I would like to thank the teams who have worked together to achieve this prestigious recognition. The project is subject to very high technical standards of sustainable development and, as a flagship project for Montréal and Canada, it was crucial for SSL to attain the highest possible distinction."

Hugh Boyd, Project Director for the New Champlain Bridge Corridor Project, Signature on the St-Lawrence
