Roberts Bank Terminal 2 is a proposed new marine container terminal on Canada’s west coast led by the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority. If approved and built, Roberts Bank Terminal 2 would play a critical role in supporting Canadian exporters and consumers of goods who increasingly want to trade with economies around the world.
The Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project involves the construction of a new three-berth marine container terminal in the Port of Vancouver in Delta, British Columbia. The terminal would be located in deep, subtidal waters to minimize environmental effects. The project would be funded by the financially self-sufficient port authority and private investment.

The Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project is currently undergoing a federal environmental assessment by an independent review panel appointed by the federal minister of environment and climate change, under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012. The project is also subject to regulatory approvals and permits, market conditions and a final investment decision. Construction would take approximately five-and-a-half years.
