South Shore Community Liaison Committee

The South Shore Community Liaison Committee brings together local residents, municipal, port industry and Indigenous representatives to better understand and address local port-related issues on the south shore of the Burrard Inlet.

The committee was established in summer 2019 for a timeframe of four years, which aligns with the timing of significant planned port development activities in the area.
