    Over the past year, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority has acquired three properties across the Lower Mainland in Vancouver, Surrey, and Delta. We intend to designate these sites to a port authority Land Use Plan designation from their former land use designations, as required under the Canada Marine Act.

    We also entered into a long-term lease (60 years) with the Province of B.C. on a site in Delta, and will be redesignating the land use of an existing site in Surrey.

    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 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.
