Online application portal launched for Project and Environmental Review process

September 18, 2017

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority is improving the Project and Environmental Review process for applicants. We have released a major improvement to the application process: an online application portal.

The portal replaces the previous PDF forms used for application, and provides a website allowing applicants to register and complete all application and document information online.

The port authority administers several permitting processes to ensure all proposed developments and activities meet applicable standards and minimize environmental and community impacts. The Project and Environmental Review process applies to all proposed physical works and activities on federal lands and waters partially or wholly within the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority’s jurisdiction.

We have consistently received feedback from tenants and customers about the service times associated with the process. The online application portal now provides one location where all submission information and documents can be accessed. Users can log on to the portal to submit and view all information associated with their application.

The improvement is intended to shorten service times and improve the user experience for the Project and Environmental Review application process.
