Canada’s west coast is a special part of the world with spectacular natural beauty. Vancouver consistently ranks as one of the world’s most livable cities. Its communities are vibrant and growing, with an economy grounded by diverse and strong business sectors. The port plays an important role in the region’s prosperity.

As the port authority responsible for Canada’s largest port, we carefully and constantly balance multiple priorities and interests. We facilitate trade that supports jobs in communities across the country, and also uphold port safety and security, protect the environment, and consider local community interests.

We believe a sustainable port delivers economic prosperity through trade, maintains a healthy environment, and enables thriving communities, through meaningful dialogue, shared aspirations and collective accountability.
