Active Vessel Traffic Management Program

Public engagement updates

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority invites you to learn about our work to develop a better active vessel traffic management system and share your ideas.

This summer, we’re sharing information about how vessel traffic and anchorages are managed today. Between July 11 and August 31, 2022, we invite you to learn more about:

  • How ship traffic and anchorages are currently managed
  • Roles of the port authority, Transport Canada and the Canadian Coast Guard
  • How increased efficiency will help better manage effects of anchorages on Southern Gulf Island communities
  • What initiatives are underway to improve efficiency
  • Upcoming opportunities to participate in the active vessel traffic management system design

Share your ideas through the online survey.

We will consider this input as we continue planning the new system. In fall 2022, we’ll invite input and feedback on potential solutions for:

  • How anchorages are assigned
  • Minimizing noise and light effects
  • Understanding environmental impacts
  • Enhancing port efficiency and vessel safety
  • Information sharing and complaint resolution
