    The Centerm Expansion Project is a proposed series of improvements to Centerm container terminal and port roads. It includes improvements at Centerm container terminal to help meet anticipated near-term demand for containers to be shipped through Vancouver. In addition, the application for a project permit includes the proposed South Shore Access Project to improve infrastructure that would benefit the entire south shore port area. Collectively, they are referred to as the project.

    Subject to regulatory approvals, the on-terminal improvements would increase the maximum container handling capacity at Centerm by two-thirds, from 900,000 twenty-foot equivalent unit containers (TEUs) to 1.5 million TEUs. The project would include an increase to the terminal footprint by approximately 15 percent and reconfiguration of the terminal to increase the container capacity of Centerm.

    Public consultation on the project is taking place from February 20 – March 24, 2017.
