Community Engagement

2022 Supplemental Public Engagement


Thank you to our North Vancouver neighbours for sharing your feedback on our proposed mitigations. The Community Survey extended from July 27 to September 14, 2022 and is now closed. All of the feedback will be compiled for review by the Seaspan project team and provided to the port authority. Thank you, as well, to the community members and strata representatives who agreed to participate in Seaspan’s mitigation workshop.

The workshop was held to gather suggestions to shape solutions, and refine the proposed Water Lot Project mitigations for broad community input and consideration by the port authority. Workshop attendees included 14 individuals – eight from the community (recruited from those who signed up to receive updates about the proposed project) and four representatives from two strata councils closest to Vancouver Drydock.

2021 Public Engagement


In July and August 2021, under the guidance and direction of the port authority, Seaspan undertook public engagement activities to notify and seek feedback from the North Vancouver community on the proposed Vancouver Drydock Water Lot Project. We heard from 285 individuals and greatly appreciated the input that was offered.

In addition to receiving a number of feedback forms and emails, Seaspan hosted two community information meetings on July 13 and July 15, 2021.
