Port Metro Vancouver is active in each of our neighbouring communities, whether it’s by building infrastructure projects, supporting local community programs, or contributing to the economy through jobs and wages. We are proud to partner with all our communities.

The Waterfront United initiative is collaboration between employers and unions on Metro Vancouver’s waterfront working together for the greater good to move children from poverty to possibility, help kids be all they can be, and build stronger communities for seniors. Port Metro Vancouver and ILWU Local 517 have been part of this great initiative from the beginning.
When the Waterfront United initiative launched in 2013, it raised $600,000 and brought together seven unions, 11 organizations and more than 6,000 people to all work together in support of children and seniors in our community through United Way giving campaigns.
We are very pleased to announce that thanks to your help and hard work, Waterfront United raised over $650,000 for the community in 2014.
