CTMA was founded in the forties, from the need of the community of the Magdalen Islands to provide itself with a dedicated and reliable means of transportation that would play an active role in the economic development of the region. For many years, the company's ships traveled between the Atlantic Provinces, Quebec and the Magdalen Islands, carrying goods and passengers to and from the archipelago. In the seventies, the Group introduced a regular Ferry Service between Prince Edward Island and the Magdalen Islands. Since then, that Ferry Service has become the main access to the Islands. More recently, the company introduced a regular weekly cruise between Montreal, the Gaspésie Region and the Magdalen Islands, with a stopover in Quebec City on the way back. CTMA Group also operates a fleet of trucks, offering ground transportation between destinations in Canada and the Eastern United States.
