Port of Vancouver operations update
To Port of Vancouver’s valued Customers and Stakeholders,
The wildfire situation affecting CP and CN rail lines in the B.C. interior remains fluid and both railways are working with authorities in the region to ensure safe operations. Spot fires in the area have caused some disruptions, including temporary stoppages of rail services. However, CP and CN mainlines routed through the impacted area remain operational. Trains will continue operating in accordance with the Ministerial Order issued on July 11, 2021, which requires reduced speed limits and fire mitigation measures to be in place.
A copy of the July 11, 2021 Ministerial Order can be found here: Ministerial Order – July 11, 2021
Anchorage demand continues to be high and nearing capacity. Demand for large vessel anchorages presently exceeds supply. Anchorages are assigned in a manner that ensures fluidity across all ship types and maintains essential services. Vessels in port can be viewed on the home page of the PortVan eHub app by selecting “Vessels in Port”.
We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you updated on any new developments as information becomes available.
