Environmental Assessment Decision

Vancouver Fraser Port Authority, doing business as Port Metro Vancouver, completed the screening of the Vancouver Airport Fuel Delivery Project and on December 16, 2013 determined to take the following course of action. The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority may exercise any power or perform any duty or function with respect to the project because, after having considered the screening report and taking into account the implementation of appropriate mitigations measures and environmental conditions, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority is of the opinion that the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects (as per section 15 of the Canada Port Authority Environmental Assessment Regulations, under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, S.C. 1992, s. 37).

Implementation of mitigation measures and environmental conditions is required for the project to address:

  • Fisheries, aquatics and surface water quality
  • Vegetation, wildlife and wildlife habitat
  • Air quality and climate
  • Noise
  • Soil and groundwater quality (contaminated sites)
  • Economic effects
  • Social effects
  • Aesthetic values and visual resources
  • Heritage and archaeology
  • Health effects
  • Navigable waters and navigation
  • First Nations considerations

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority has determined that a follow-up program, as defined under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, is not required for this project.
