Centerm Port Expansion Project - 777 Centennial Road

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority (VFPA) has received a project permit application from the VFPA Infrastructure Delivery Centerm Expansion Project team (the Applicant) to construct an expansion to the Centerm container terminal, located at the above noted address.

The site in question is wholly owned by the Port Authority and entirely within their jurisdiction. Consequently the VFPA will not require a development or building permit from the City in order for this project to proceed. That being said, the VFPA does seek City input, as well as community input, before it makes a decision.

Port led consultation and engagement opportunities will be sent to the community and stakeholders in early 2017, and will also be posted online.

The consultation will include in-person meetings, a discussion guide and feedback form, and online information. The second round of consultation is anticipated in the spring 2017 and once the date is confirmed, it will be posted on the project’s website.

If you would like to learn more or see the plans and documents which have been submitted to the VFPA with this application, please visit the Centerm Project webpage at Alternatively, you may contact the Port at 604.665.9378 to obtain project information.

We welcome your written comments (letter or e-mail) on how the proposed development would affect you or your neighborhood. Please submit your written comments to me on or before Thursday, February 9, 2017. All comments received will be taken into consideration during the City’s review of this proposal. You may also forward your written comments to the VFPA office at 100 The Pointe, 999 Canada Place Vancouver, B.C. Canada  V6C 3T4 or Tim Blair,   Senior Planner, via email at
