North Shore Waterfront Liaison Committee

About us

Do you have a question about port activities on the North Shore? The North Shore Waterfront Liaison Committee wants to hear from you.

With representatives from local residents, Indigenous communities, municipalities, industry and the port authority, our role is to liaise between different groups, share information, and address local port-related issues. We meet regularly at locations throughout the North Shore.

  • Ask us a question about port activities
