Notice of Determination

Vancouver, B.C. –May 11, 2020– The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority has determined that the proposed Centerm Expansion Project – Amendment PER No. 15-012-03 (Condition 47 – Extended Hours) is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.

This determination was based on a consideration of the following factors:

  • Impacts on rights of Indigenous peoples
  • Indigenous knowledge
  • Community knowledge
  • Comments received from the public
  • Technically and economically feasible mitigation measures

Mitigation measures taken into account for this determination are:

  • Activities likely to generate noise are to be concentrated to daytime hours to the extent possible
  • Noise monitoring will be implemented at Main Street overpass and at Crab Park and be included in environmental monitoring reports. This information will be used to help determine if additional noise mitigation is required
  • All conditions of Project Permit 15-012 continue to apply during extended work hours for the duration of the permit

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority is satisfied that the carrying out of the amendment to the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.

Therefore, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority may carry out the project, exercise any power, perform any duty or function, or provide financial assistance to enable the project to be carried out in whole or in part.
