TORONTO – The Port of Toronto reported a total of 2,311,616 metric tonnes of cargo products moved in 2023, with aggregate and construction materials making up a significant portion of this figure.

Of total cargo moved, the port reported that 796,644 metric tonnes of cement (an 11 per cent increase from 2022), 97,016 metric tonnes of aggregate and 123,234 metric tonnes of steel products came through the port to be provided to construction sites throughout the Greater Toronto Area.

“The Port of Toronto is a reliable, sustainable trade gateway that imports millions of tonnes of goods each year that our city needs to continue to thrive,” said RJ Steenstra, president and CEO of PortsToronto. “From the cement needed to supply our construction industry – one of the busiest in North America – to the sugar we use to sweeten our morning coffee.”
