British Columbia Ports Strategy

What We Did

CTC prepared a long-term vision and action plan for British Columbia’s major trading ports to achieve the significant growth opportunities ahead. Apart from the final Strategy document, CTC was also responsible for preparing the B.C. Ports Competitive Profile, a comprehensive review and assessment of: traffic demand projections to 2020 (containers, break-bulk, dry and liquid-bulk); the competitive context for North American west coast ports; shipping industry and technology trends and the port and rail regulatory/policy environment. The project included extensive industry consultations and two major industry-government workshops. This landmark project paved the way for several Asia-Pacific gateway trade and transportation initiatives.
