Community Investment

Community Investment Program

Port Metro Vancouver is committed to being a good neighbour.  Our jurisdiction covers nearly 600 kilometres of shoreline, bordering on 16 municipalities and one treaty First Nation and intersecting the traditional territories of several First Nations.

As we grow so too does our ability to support our neighbouring communities. Through our dynamic and broad-ranging community investment program, we dedicate up to one per cent of our net income to initiatives that matter to local communities. With our focus on three key pillars of Community EnrichmentEducation and Training and Environmental Leadership, we believe these make the most difference in your community.
