Proposed Maplewood Marine Restoration Project


Public consultation | September 24 – October 12, 2018

The Project team will be consulting with the public and stakeholders from September 24 to October 12, 2018 as part of the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority’s Project and Environmental Review (PER) process. Please read below for consultation details.

About the proposed Project

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority’s Habitat Enhancement Program is working to enhance fish and wildlife habitat at a marine site immediately south of the Maplewood Flats Conservation Area in the District of North Vancouver, B.C. The proposed Maplewood Marine Restoration Project would enhance approximately seven hectares of lower-value marine habitat into higher-value intertidal, eelgrass and subtidal rock reef habitat.

The proposed Project consists of one site located on the north shore of Burrard Inlet, approximately two kilometres east of the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge. This marine site was identified as a restoration priority for the Tsleil-Waututh Nation and was selected for habitat enhancement because of its current relatively low habitat values, and based on input from Aboriginal groups.

The enhanced marine habitat is anticipated to provide long-term benefits for fish and invertebrates that depend on marine vegetation for rearing habitat, along with other fish and wildlife species such as waterfowl and wading birds.
