The Port Community Liaison Committee - Delta (PCLC) serves as a mechanism for dialogue and communications about port-related issues in Delta. Working in the spirit of collaboration, the PCLC is an information sharing forum that brings together municipal, First Nations, industry, Port Metro Vancouver, and community interests to discuss developments, identify concerns, provide suggestions, as well as facilitate two-way communication among respective constituencies about port operations and development.
The PCLC is comprised of up to 15 individuals. Representatives from the Corporation of Delta, Tsawwassen First Nations, community organizations, port industry, and Port Metro Vancouver are appointed by their respective bodies. Community representatives provide geographic representation from the whole community (Tsawwassen, Ladner and North Delta), as well as the diverse mix of interests within the municipality of Delta.
The PCLC meets four to six times per year or on an as needed basis. The work of the Committee helps to foster a uniform approach to communication among stakeholder groups about port issues, operations, and development, as well as encouraging information sharing and identifying opportunities for timely community input.
