The Institut Nordique de Recherche en Environnement et en Santé au Travail (INREST), the Port of Sept-Îles and the City of Sept-Îles, in partnership with the pan-Canadian project CHONe II, held the first International Congress on Industrial Port Research in Sept-Îles, from May 27-31, 2019. 
The Bay of Sept-Îles hosts one of the most important research projects in Canada - NSERC’s Canadian Healthy Oceans Network (CHONe II) - as well as the environmental monitoring observatory of the bay of Sept-Îles. Moreover, the port of Sept-Îles - the second largest in Canada - plays host to world-class businesses around its industrial port area. The presence of these industrial and transport activities, added to the municipal, recreational and tourism activities, plus the particular local environmental conditions (diverse ecosystems, freshwater inflow, etc), make the Bay of Sept-Îles an ideal place for research into natural and anthropogenic stress factors.






CIRSIP 2019 was a great success, bringing together
