The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority, doing business as Port Metro Vancouver, is responsible for the stewardship of federal port lands in and around Vancouver, British Columbia.
Like all Canadian port authorities, Port Metro Vancouver is established by the Government of Canada pursuant to the Canada Marine Act, and accountable to the federal Minister of Transport. Our mandate is to facilitate Canada’s trade objectives, ensuring goods are moved safely, while protecting the environment and considering local communities.
The port is Canada’s largest, supporting close to one in every five dollars of trade in goods that flow through our country and offering the broadest range of cargo-handling options of any port in North America.
