Noise monitoring program

Our noise monitoring program helps us to gain a better understanding of the existing noise environment, identify where there might be concerns and track noise trends over the long-term.

Liaison committee

The East Vancouver Port Lands Committee consists of representatives from the Burrardview Community Association, City of Vancouver, Canadian Pacific Rail, the port authority, and Viterra. The committee developed the East Vancouver Port Lands Plan to address compatibility issues between industrial and residential land uses in this area between Victoria Drive and the Second Narrows Bridge, as well as the adjacent Burrardview neighbourhood.

The South Shore Community Liaison Committee established in 2019 will be engaging the community on an ongoing basis about port-related activities on the south shore of Burrard Inlet. The committee is advisory in nature. It is comprised of up to 18 people representing community, Indigenous, municipal, and port industry interests.
