Southern B.C. anchorage noise and light concerns

This form should be used to submit noise and light concerns related to vessels at anchor in the Southern B.C. Islands.

In accordance with the Interim Protocol for the Use of Southern B.C. Anchorages, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority will address anchorage concerns related to noise and light.

Please complete the form below. Once the online form is submitted, it will generate an automatic email to the port authority’s 24/7 port operations centre, who will contact the vessel’s agent (responsible for the ship while in B.C.’s coastal waters) within two to four hours to minimize noise and light when possible and safe to do so. Please note that ships require some power and light to safely operate when at anchor. Your concerns will also be reported to Transport Canada.
