Vancouver Fraser Port Authority finalizes updated land use plan

January 26, 2021

On December 8, 2020, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority’s board of directors approved the port authority’s updated land use plan. 

The Canada Marine Act requires that all port authorities have a land use plan. The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority Land Use Plan describes its long-term land use policy directions and commitment to accommodate future trade growth in a socially, environmentally and economically responsible way. It provides a framework to guide existing and future development of the lands and waters the port authority manages for the next 15 to 20 years. 

The land use plan was originally adopted in 2014, and was recently reviewed and updated to ensure it remains current, reflects future market trends critical to Canada’s growing trade, supports local communities and Indigenous groups, and generates benefits for all Canadians. 

During a two-phase engagement process held in fall 2019 and summer 2020, the port authority engaged with local governments, Indigenous groups, the public, and stakeholders.
