Current Projects

Land Use Plan

Work is underway to update our Land Use Plan, which will articulate our policies on land use and development, and identify the appropriate types of uses on land and water across the Port’s entire jurisdiction. 

Sustainable Gateway Initiative

Port Metro Vancouver is embarking on a process to develop a sustainable gateway definition and integration framework to help us lead the Vancouver Gateway. The initiative will support our corporate vision – to be recognized as a world class Gateway by efficiently and sustainably connecting Canada with the global economy, inspiring support from our customers and from communities locally and across the nation – by defining what a port in a sustainable world looks like.

Low Level Road Project

Includes elevating and realigning the existing Low Level Road, addresses slope stability, eliminates three at-grade rail crossings, improves road safety and accelerates the City's Spirit Trail Master Plan.  This will increase the international competitiveness of the North Shore Trade Area by improving the efficiency of Port operations while addressing long-standing community needs. 

South Shore Corridor Project

Includes a new elevated road, pedestrian overpass, and roadway and technology improvements on Port land in Vancouver.  These improvements will enhance Port operations and provide for future rail capacity improvements as trade on the South Shore continues to grow.  Construction is underway. 

Energy Action Initiative

Our Gateway is growing to meet Canada's future trade demand, and this means more energy will be needed. Our Energy Action Initiative is helping the Gateway plan for the future by advancing efficient, reliable, competitive and clean energy systems. We want to leverage clean hydroelectric energy and maximize electrical energy efficiency. Our Energy Action Initiative can help the Port tenants identify and seize opportunities to reduce energy costs and support increased productivity. 

Non-Road Diesel Emissions Initiative

Please visit the Non-Road Diesel Emissions Initiative PortTalk page to learn more and to provide input during consultation.

The program consists of projects around the Lower Mainland, through which Port Metro Vancouver ensures the viability and sustainability of new and enhanced habitat. The program is a proactive measure intended to provide a balance between a healthy environment and future development projects that may be required for port operations.
