We want to hear from you.
Over the next two years, we will host a series of activities designed to provide you with relevant information so that you can share your insight and expertise.
Your input will help us prepare a Land Use Plan that balances diverse perspectives and enables the Port to fulfill its mandate to facilitate the growth of trade in the best interest of all Canadians.
Opportunities to participate include a series of stakeholder workshops, public open houses, online feedback and discussion guides.

Phase 2 Stakeholder Workshops and Open Houses
Three stakeholder workshops and three open houses were held in October and November, 2012. The purpose of the events were to:
- Report on activities and input received to date
- Present draft goals, objectives and policy directions
- Discuss draft and gather feedback
- Describe next steps in the Land Use Plan process.
Participants were also invited to fill in a feedback form on the draft goals, objectives and policy directions. The Phase 2 Consultation Summary Report will be available soon.
Phase 1 Stakeholder Workshops and Open Houses
Five stakeholder workshops and three open houses were held between April and June 2012. During this first phase, we invited a diverse range of stakeholders, customers, First Nations, and community members to help us gather information on each theme and identify the specific topics that matter most.
The objectives of the Phase 1 stakeholder workshops were to:
- Present and gather comments on our current information;
- Gather new and additional information for each workshop theme; and
- Identify top issues and questions for policy to address.
Summary Reports of all the information gathered during Phase 1 are now available.
We are committed to the following consultation principles:
- Stakeholders and customers affected by or interested in the Land Use Plan will have fair and equal access to the process by which it is prepared
- Participants will be given the information they need to provide their advice and input in a meaningful way
- All input gathered through consultation activities will be duly considered and will have the potential to influence policy decisions
- The needs and interests of all participants, including decision-makers, will be recognized and communicated throughout the process
- Participants will be advised on how their input affected the Land Use Plan and the rationale behind policy decisions
