In 2004, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority entered into a Memorandum of Agreement with Tsawwassen First Nation. The purpose of the Agreement is to set out the basis for Tsawwassen First Nation to benefit from the Deltaport Third Berth Project and the Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project and to provide a basis for a mutually beneficial relationship. The Memorandum of Agreement addresses mitigation measures, compensation for potential infringements, business development opportunities and employment opportunities.
The port authority is working with other Aboriginal groups to facilitate access to Project benefits, including training, employment opportunities and Project contracting opportunities.
