Since 2011, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority has led four rounds of public consultation regarding the project. These port authority-led consultation rounds are in addition to opportunities for public comment provided through the environmental assessment process.
During Pre-Consultation in 2011, the port authority sought input regarding how participants wanted to be consulted and what topics they would like to should be addressed.
As a result, topics of consultation during Project Definition Consultation (2012), Pre-Design Consultation (2013) and consultation regarding Preliminary Environmental Mitigation Concepts (2014) included: elements of project design, topics of environmental studies, potential Project effects, and draft environmental mitigation concepts.
Input received during consultation has been considered, along with technical and economic information, in the development of the project and the development of the Environmental Impact Statement.
Port authority-led consultation materials, including discussion guides, consultation summary reports and consideration memos, are available here.
