The Deltaport Third Berth Project (DP3) required provincial approval under the British Columbia Environmental Assessment Act and federal approval following a review under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act.
The Project has been comprehensively reviewed by federal and provincial government agencies through a single, harmonized environmental assessment process facilitated by the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) and has been open to the full participation of stakeholders and the general public during all phases of the review.
The main on-site project components include:
- a wharf to create the third berth
- creation of land for a container storage yard
- tug moorage area
- ship access channel
- terminal services and infrastructure
The main off-site project components include:
- environmental habitat creation
- additional rail track
- road improvements
